The HARP program is known commonly as the "upside down refinance." Hurry, it ends December 31, 2018.

The HARP program is expired!  FHFA has confirmed that a new HARP-like program will open up to homeowners starting January 1, 2019. The new program eliminates the requirement that the loan must have been opened on or before May 31, 2009. Instead, the loan note date must be on or after October 1, 2017.Aug 28, 2017 -The Mortgage Insider

You Can Not Have Used the HARP Program previously

Unless it was a Fannie Mae owned loan that was previously refinanced from March through May of 2009.

You must have a current LTV meaning Loan to Value (Loan is what you owe, value is what the home is worth) of more than 80%

  • You have to be current on the payments. Yes a good past 12 month payment history is needed. This is different from HAMP. If you are behind on payments, please visit the HAMP site for more information on that program.

Please check your Freddie Mac potential eligibility here Please check your potential eligibility for Fannie Mae Here Click on this link to visit the main government operated page for All of the guidelines.

You Don't Have to Use Your Current Lender!

You can try to contact your current lender, but you will have to go through the same prequalifying process, so shop around! I used this program myself, you can use any approved lenders. Compare a few, because based on what closing costs (lending fees they charge, this gets added to your mortgage, so it makes a difference. Please shop for the best terms and rate.
