YES you can refinance your mortgage if you have been living in the home for a year. The difference between a rate/term refinance and a cash-out refinance is simple. A rate/term refinance is when you refinance to try and get a lower rate if maybe your credit has improved or you lower your term from say a 30 year to a 15 year. A cash out refinance is doing a rate and term plus using the equity in your home (mortgage balance and any other liens on the property subracted from current market value of home) to pull cash out to consolidate bills or home improvements, etc.
