Refinancing Process

Get Pre-Approved

Getting a home equity loan to refinance your floating home starts with getting a pre-approval. We recommend applying for the most you might need. When you’re ready to move forward we’ll sign initial documents and get started.

Inspect and Appraise

The float will be inspected to find any issues, and we’ll get an appraisal to find the value. The float inspection must pass with a minimum three rating and life expectancy of 15-20 years.

Sign Final Documents

We’ll work with you and a title company to get all the other pieces in place. Once everything’s ready, you’ll sign the final documents and we’ll be done!

Loan Options

Refinancing your home loan should be simple, that’s why we offer three refinance loan options for owner-occupied, investment, and vacation floating homes in Oregon. Financing available up to 70-80% of the value of your home.

Home Equity Line of Credit
