Existing mortgage requirements for the HARP Refinance Program.
[See the full post at: Current Mortgage]December 7, 2011 at 2:39 pm #2226
THE HARP PROGRAM SEEMS TO BE WHAT WE NEED FOR REFINANCING OUR HOME. UNFORTUNATELY, OUR LENDER IS NOT FREDDIE MAC, OR FANNIE MAE. OUR LENDER IS CITI MORTGAGE.
DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO GET ANY OTHER LOW INTEREST RATES REFINANCING, MAYBE AROUND 2%, 2.94%. WE ARE CURRENTLY AT 6.5%. PLEASE HELP. THANK YOU ALL. LOVE, PEACE, AND JOY!!!January 8, 2012 at 11:10 am #2227

Thank youJanuary 23, 2012 at 11:32 am #2230
Vera J – just because your lender is CitiMortgage doesn’t mean you don’t have a fannie or freddie. Our lender is Wells and we had a freddie mortgage – freddie and fannie are governtment mortgage backers – they back the loan company writing the loan. Call CITI and ask if you have a freddie or fannie.January 24, 2012 at 11:04 am #2231
Vera… ours is Citi too but it is BACKED by Freddie. Check and see if yours is too – it just has to be BACKED by Freddie Mac.January 24, 2012 at 9:33 pm #2232
I also have CITI and I have Freddie Mac behind my loan and according to CITI, I do not qualify. But according to this Website I meet all the requirements. I honestly think that CITI is full of it! I think that it does not benefit CITI for me to get a Refi. through the HARP Program and that’s why “I don’t qualify” I just called 888-995-HOPE according to the HARP program representative someone will call me back and help me out. Wish me luck!!! Keep you guys posted.January 27, 2012 at 3:21 pm #2233

I have a mortgage with Bank of America to which I applied for a modification. They have been asking for the same document for the past 3 months. I am current on my mortgage and for the first time I will be behind in my Real Estate taxes. My interest rate is 6.25% and have almost exhaust all my savings trying to keep up. How do I find out if my mortgage is backed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae?
Thanks for your response.February 16, 2012 at 6:29 am #2235
I have a BOA loan and qualify for the HARP program, however BOA have just told me that because I had a no closing cost mortgage originally I do not qualify. Is this true?? Has anyone else been told this??February 16, 2012 at 10:07 am #2236
I do HARP loans in Maryland, Virginia, D.C., Delaware, Pennsylvania, and No Carolina.
Also, FHA and Va streamlines. Please contact me if I can be of help to you.

I filled out the form under the Harp Program. I didn’t qualify but no explaination. My current mortage is $48,000 but the value is only $40,000, per my mortage company. The scales on the form don’t go that low. Is there a phone number I can call to talk to someone?February 23, 2012 at 5:36 pm #2238
Who do I contact to see if I qualifyFebruary 28, 2012 at 2:50 am #2239

I have a FHA loan and purchased in 2008 for 145k its value is now approx 80k, I have 6.0 % and been denied several times for HAMP, or Remodification, reasons were debt to income ratio. I purchased in my name only prior to getting married , I cant use my wife , as her credit is low FICO,due previous divorce. I make less than when I purchased the home. Any help will be appreciatedMarch 26, 2012 at 3:02 pm #2243
I bought my home in June 2006. I put 20 percent down, and another 10,000 on the principal for the next couple of years. I had an interest only loan, and the value of my home dropped and I owe about 70,000 more than what it is worth. I did get a loan modification about 2 years ago, at a very low interest rate for 5 years, but at the end of 10 years, the interest rate will be 5.25 percent and I will probably still be under water. Is it possible for my loan to be included in this new program for underwater home owners. I am current on my payment, and never been late.April 9, 2012 at 6:18 pm #2244
I would try the HOPE and ask them.
You will need Monthly Mortgage, Taxes, Insurance.
Hope this helped.
