Refinance & Loan Modification Programs
Depending on what is in your best interests, we can determine a plan of action that can help you stay in your home. This could include a loan modification or mortgage refinance negotiation. Government and lender programs that allow flexibility in loan or mortgage payments exist to benefit individuals who are experiencing financial hardship. Programs include:
Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP)
Homeowners who cannot qualify for a refinance program can try to negotiate a mortgage refinance plan through HARP. HARP is not beneficial for all homeowners but can be of great use for homeowners who have experienced any of the following:
- Have little to no equity value in the home
- Have the financial ability to afford new payments on a mortgage
Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP)
HAMP can provide relief for homeowners who are several months behind on their mortgages, are in the midst of the foreclosure process, or fear the foreclosure process may be a possibility. HAMP allows homeowners to modify their loans to lower rates. Homeowners can be eligible for HAMP if they:
- Currently have a loan to modify
- Took out a mortgage before January 1, 2009
- Currently and primarily live in the property
- Are behind on a mortgage or are about to default due to financial hardship
