GEORGETOWN, TEXAS (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
The HARP, or Home Affordable Refinance Program, loans are intended for homeowners who are underwater on their mortgages. The refinance program has been in existence since 2009 and allows homeowners to refinance if they meet certain conditions.
In order to be eligible for HARP, the loan must be owned or guaranteed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae, the loan-to-value ratio of the mortgage must be greater than 80 percent and the homeowner must be current on his or her mortgage with a good payment history over the past year.
“This program aims to help people who were responsible with their mortgage, but still ended up being victims of the housing bubble and subsequent economic downturn,” said Kristi France, a loan originator at Georgetown Mortgage Bank. “With interest rates as low as they are right now, this is a good option for many people who are underwater on their mortgages and looking to refinance.”
Georgetown Mortgage Bank provides each customer with a personalized loan originator to help borrowers navigate the mortgage and refinance process. The loan originators say they pride themselves on their “one loan does not fit all” philosophy, which enables them to help each borrower find the best loan choice for his or her unique situation.
