HARP Loan for Underwater Mortgages
|If you owe more on your mortgage than your home's value, you may have options under the HARP.|
Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae have adopted changes to the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), and you may be eligible to take advantage of these changes.
· Simple Refi Loan Process
· Above 125% Loan to Value Now OK!

What Is The HARP Program?
Recent updates to HARP 2.0 went into effect in early 2012 that expanded the HARP refinance program's guidelines to reach Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington homeowners who owe more than 125% of their property's value.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have over 4 million loans that fit that criteria. Removing the road blocks many of these homeowners have faced in the past will make it easier for millions of people to save money on their monthly mortgage payments, as well as refinancing into a more stable loan.
