- Hi everyone, Chris Loschiavo with Home Team Epic and I Think Realty, I've been doing market updates for Polk County for almost a year now. And in the last month had some requests to take a look at
What Is The HARP Program And Are You Eligible
Dated: October 25 2018
What is the HARP Program?
The Home Affordable Refinance Program is a federal program of the United States, set up by the Federal Housing Finance Agency in March 2009, to help underwater and near-underwater homeowners refinance their mortgages.
HARP targets borrowers with loan-to-value (LTV) ratios equal to or greater than 80 percent and who have limited delinquencies over the 12 months prior to refinancing.
Through HARP, you can get a lower interest rate (which means less out-of-pocket costs each month), get a shorter loan term, or change from an adjustable to fixed-rate mortgage. There’s no minimum credit score needed, either.
Might You Be Eligible? Does this information below apply to you
You are current on your mortgage, with no 30-day + late payments in the last six months and no more than one in the past 12 months.
Your home is your primary residence, a 1-unit second home or a 1- to 4-unit investment property.
Your loan is owned by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.
You can use the Loan Look-up Tools below if you are unsure.
Your loan was originated on or before May 31, 2009.
Your current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio must be greater than 80%.
Is your mortgage owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac?
Fannie Mae - 800-7FANNIE (8 am to 8 pm ET)
Freddie Mac - 800-FREDDIE (8 am to 8 pm ET)
Note: Be sure and check your address on both the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac look-up tool. If your address does not appear in the look-up tool of either site, your loan is not owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and you are not eligible for the program.
