Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 27, 2011

Quicken Loans Inc., the 50-state lender of refinance and purchase mortgages, is offering New York homeowners a more cost-effective alternative when refinancing their home.

Typically, a refinance in New York means residents have to pay state mortgage tax on the entire new loan amount. Quicken Loans is offering clients the opportunity to obtain a Consolidation, Extension and Modification Agreement, or CEMA loan. This means clients only have to pay taxes on the amount of the new loan that is above and beyond their current unpaid principal balance, such as closing costs or additional funds taken as cash out.

While CEMA can help to reduce the amount of money paid in New York state mortgage taxes, it’s important to note that these loans have additional fees that may make them less advantageous for certain clients when coupled with varying tax rates and attorney fees. Clients should consult with their Home Loan Expert to determine the most cost-effective path to a refinance.

CEMA loans are only available on conventional, jumbo and FHA refinances.
