A cash-out refinance allows you to access the equity in your home for extra cash if you have considerable equity in the home. For example, if your home is worth $250,000 and you still owe $150,000, you could take out a new loan for $180,000, pay off the existing loan amount and use the remaining $30,000 to consolidate credit card debt.
