Question by John F: Has anyone refinanced a mortgage lately?
I am curious what equity percentage is required these days for a mortgage refinance or new home purchase. Also, if anyone has refinanced through ING lately, please share your experience.

I recently went through the process of refinancing, and conventional thresholds are now being enforced if it is a fannie or freddie loan. That means you must meet the requirement of the entity securing the loan.
With a 28/36 qualifying ratio:
Gross monthly income of $ 3,500 x .28 = $ 980 can be applied to housing
Gross monthly income of $ 3,500 x .36 = $ 1,260 can be applied to recurring debt plus housing expenses
I have never borrowed from ING, I cannot help you there.

I just refinanced through my friend about 2mos ago. I would highly recommend him. I’m not certain if I should give out his info here, but if you want it, give me an email/pm, and I’ll forward his info on to you amd tell him I sent you.

Equity % varies case by case and lender by lender. If you need a low deposit speak to a local broker, they usually have more flexibility than your high street bank.
