Government Mortgage Loan Programs

FHA Streamline Loan

FHA Streamline loans can help homeowner's lower monthly mortgage payments and interest rates. But as with any other government program there are special requirements for an FHA Streamline loan? Outside of currently having an FHA loan, the other requirements for an FHA Streamline Refinance are:

  • Being current on the existing loan with all mortgage payment, for the last 12 months. A delinquent mortgage will not be approved for a refinance.
  • You must own the original property for at least six months before you can qualify for refinancing.
  • For an FHA streamline you must close through an FHA-approved lender. If you don't want to use your current lender, the bank you choose must be FHA approved.
  • FHA Streamline loans do not require an appraisal, but a no-appraisal loan cannot exceed your current loan.
  • Closing costs must either be paid through the amount of the loan or at close. When closing costs are paid at close, a cashier's check or money order must be submitted upon loan closure

Home Affordable Refinance Program - HARP Loan

In October 2011 the government made favorable modifications to the existing HARP (Home Affordable Refinance Program). Many people are finding it hard to refinance their mortgage loans, as their mortgage balance is greater than their homes current value. If you are in such a situation, then you should consider the Making Home Affordable Program - HARP. You may be eligible for HARP if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • The mortgage must be owned or guaranteed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.
  • The mortgage must have been sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac on or before May 31, 2009.
  • The mortgage must not have been refinanced under HARP previously unless it is a Fannie Mae loan that was refinanced under HARP from March-May, 2009.
  • The current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio must be greater than 80%.
  • The borrower must be current on the mortgage at the time of the refinance, with a good payment history in the past 12 months.
