What Is a HARP Refinance?

Originally started in April 2009, the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) is a mortgage refinance program designed to assist underwater homeowner’s with conforming / conventional home mortgages.

However, under the old HARP refinance setup, restrictions on Loan to Value of 125% and large interest rate adjustments for refinances over 100% LTV meant that many people we not eligible for the program.

HARP Refinance Guidelines

HARP 2.0 Refinance Guidelines | HARP Refinance Options

Not everyone will qualify for a HARP Refinance. There are guidelines, although limited, that do apply to version 2.0 of the Home Affordable Refinance Program.

  • Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac – HARP 2.0 is a program for homeowner’s with conventional mortgage loans. Your loan has to be owned by Fannie or Freddie to qualify. Not sure? Check out our HARP eligibility search tool. Not finding your loan? Don’t give up, the tool is fickle. We have the capability to dig deeper, but you need to contact us.
  • Closing Date – Your mortgage loan must have been originated prior to June 1st, 2009.
  • HARP 1.0 Refinance – If you refinance through the original HARP plan then you are not eligible.
  • Current Mortgage Payments – You have to be on-time with your mortgage. HARP 2.0 allows for NO late payments in the last 6 months and only 1 mortgage late in the past 12 months.
  • Minimum Credit Score – This will vary from HARP Lender to HARP Lender, but we are seeing a 620 middle score for most of out participating Home Affordable Refinance lenders.
  • Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance – Another tricky scenario, most likely if you have lender paid mortgage insurance then you will have to return to your current mortgage servicer for your HARP Refinance.
