My home is paid off and I'd like to refinance with a large cash out ($417K). There will still be more than 20% equity remaining. Do lenders still do those types of loans at competitive rates? If so, who? - Thanks

I'm looking to do the same. Best I've found locally at a broker for cash out refi is 3.5% no pts / no fees for 80% LTV.
Penfed has 3.25% with 0.75pts and some fees. Anybody found better?

Before you do it I hope you realize that the interest will not be tax deductible. We had a client do this on a paid off second home and ended up with 20k a year in unusable mortgage interest.

Are you a tax advisor? Note this is not a 2nd home. OP doesn't mention proceeds to be used for home improvement, so we can assume that's not in play -- sounds like a true cash-out-refi. I believe OP should at least get deducts on $100K of the principal, no matter how it's used, right?
