When refinancing, taking a loan for more than you owe on your existing mortgage. Your existing mortgage is paid off and you receive an additional payment for the balance of the new loan. You might do this if you want to make home improvements or pay for a child's education. Cash-out refinancing removes some of the equity you have built up in your home.
