Can a person refinance more than once using the HARP program?

My husband and I used HARP to refinance back in April. Just wondering if this is a program that can be used more than once.

As you know by now you can use HARP only once.  I am curious why you want to.  As you know the HARP rates are higher then what the current market rate.  There are still other options out there.  i fyou contact me I would be happy to go over them with you.

Ms. Bowen,

As you have already been told by multiple individuals, you can only take advantage of HARP one time.  BUT WHY?  The reason for this, is because the loan needs to be sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac prior to June 1, 2009.  When you refinanced in April, you obtained an entirely new mortgage.  Therefore, the loan you have today was not obtained prior to June 1, 2009.  I'm sure it's not the answer you hoped for, but at least you have a reason why the answer is no.  All the best!

HARP can be used once per property. A consumer can use HARP multiple times as long as it is on different properties.     Investment properties will qualify for HARP.

No, the HARP program can only be used once to refinance the property if it fits the HARP refinance guidelines with the mortgage lender.

Doesn't matter Brookstone, borrowers can still only use HARP once at this time. Thanks for the "market update," though!

In the words of Lee Corso; Not so fast my friend!
The train might be coming back to a station near you.

Once only. If you refinanced back in April then you took the last train out on good rates. Good for you!
