How Soon Can I Take Out a Home Equity Loan or Refinance After a Cash Purchase of a Foreclosure?

The house is only 10k. So if I pay 10k cash, how fast can I do a home equity loan for that 10k? I need to make repairs as it is a foreclosure in poor condition. Can I do a refinance loan and get more than I even paid for it if it appraises higher than 10k, which it will? Thanks for any help

    It depends on if you go through a bank or mortgage company. Many mortgage companies are willing to turn it in as soon as the sale is final. Banks generally are more resistent in this type of thing.

    If you already have a relationship with a lender then approach them and tell them what you want to do with the money. They will more than likely require an appraisal and make a decision based on your credit, income, debt and assets.

    It all depends on the difference in the value of the place and the amount owed on the loan – that is what’s considered your equity. Many banks will only loan up to about 80% of the equity, but a few go higher. For example, lets say you owe $50,000, but the place is worth $60,000, then you have $10,000 in equity. Take 80% of that and you have about $8,000 you could loan against.
