Great Northern Mortgage Corp., an established New York mortgage company, now offers assistance to apply for a New York Mortgage Refinance even if the first mortgage exceeds up to 125% of the property value.

Igor Noble of is pleased to announce that his company is now offering to assist individuals in the application proves for New York Mortgage Refinance.

Last spring the US government launched a housing relief program designed to help seven to nine million homeowners, but so far only 85,000 homeowners have used the program to refinance. Borrowers take advantage of historically low interest rates and use New York mortgage refinance to significantly cut their monthly mortgage payments.

Many homeowners mistakenly think they are not eligible. Below is a summary of the most recent guidelines that some lenders use to qualify homeowners for New York mortgage refinance:

1. The most important change is that lenders will allow to refinance the homeowner's property with the maximum loan to value, LTV, up to 125%. For example, if the property is appraised at $100,000, the lender will be able to refinance the property as long as the loan amount on the first mortgage will not exceed $125,000. If a borrower has a second mortgage as well, all existing subordinate financing must be re-subordinated. New subordinate financing will not allowed.

2. The maximum loan amounts for Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties of New York State are $729,750 for single families, $934,200 for two families, $1,129,250 for three families, and $1,403,400 for four families. For Dutchess and Orange counties are $433,750, $568,050, $686,650, and $853,350 respectively.

3. The occupancies that will qualify for New York mortgage refinance are primary residence, second homes and investment properties.

4. The property type has to be 1-4 family, warrantable condos, and PUDs. There is no limit on the number of financed properties to the same borrower.

5. There is no minimum credit score requirement. However, credit report must be submitted.

6. Mortgage insurance is not required if existing loan does not have mortgage insurance in force, regardless of LTV.

The interest rate will be based on market rates at the time of the refinance. Currently, interest rates are at historical lows, which make this a good time to examine refinancing options. Refinancing will not reduce the principal loan amount; however, refinancing should save money by reducing the amount of interest that has to be repaid over the life of the loan.

"My company can assist consumers immediately in applying for this refinance initiative and several other real estate financing transactions," Mr. Noble said. "They are a member of New York Association of Mortgage Brokers and Better Business Bureau."
