This month we’re premiering a new instructional video: Home Equity F2 Conversion featuring Calvin Mann’s expert overview of the main elements regarding converting a Texas home equity loan to a “rate and term” refi. Calvin explains why the old rule — once an equity, always an equity — is no longer in place, detailing guidelines that must be met for a successful conversion.
