San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 9, 2010
A new op-ed article about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which allows underwater homeowners to refinance to a lower mortgage rate, is now available from AimLoan.com. In the article Vince Kasperick, founder and CEO of AimLoan.com, discusses the ins and outs of this little-known program, including underwriting guidelines, why banks aren’t fully supporting the effort, and where homeowners can turn for help.
“Lowering mortgage rates for the vast majority of Americans who continue to honor their mortgage obligations is good for our homeowners and our country,” said Kasperick. “The homeowner benefits by improving net spendable income, and our economy benefits by the marginal propensity to spend. This program can be a key contributor to our nation’s continuing economic recovery.”
Recently extended by the federal government, HARP is available to homeowners with good credit whose property values have fallen below the balance on their mortgage. Kasperick advocates the expansion of HARP as a means of helping both homeowners and the nation’s economic recovery as a whole.
Kasperick wrote the article for several reasons. Firstly, the article is meant to inform the general public of the HARP program. Kasperick also intends for the article to point out that the nation’s largest banks -- who were greatly assisted by these same taxpayers in their time of need -- are not doing as much as they could to promote this program. In addition, Kasperick wrote this text to direct homeowners on how to find and competitively shop lenders offering the program.
