The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) is a program created to help homeowners refinance on a home with little equity. The goal is to help homeowners who are unable to refinance but are current on their mortgage payments get a lower interest rate and more affordable monthly payment.
Below are general eligibility guidelines. The homeowner must:
-Have a Fannie Mae or Freddic Mac mortgage. The Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac mortgage must be acquired on or before May 31, 2009.
-Be current on the mortgage payments. The homeowner can have one 30-day late payment in the past 12 months, but not within the past 6 months.
-Have never applied for a HARP program before
The most significant change to the HARP program is that there is no loan-to-value cap in the new HARP, for fixed-rate loans. Under the previous HARP program, the loan-to-value ratio could not exceed 125%.
This program is now extended to December 31, 2013.
