Refinance Relief for Homeowners who owe more than their home is worth

Refinance Relief is now available for Homeowners who owe more than their home is worth. The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) now provides an option for homeowners in Massachusetts who are "underwater" on their homes and owe more than the homes are worth to refinance their mortgages. A HARP refinance addresses situations where the homeowner's property value has fallen causing them to no longer to qualify under traditional underwriting criteria... more detailed information can be found by searching for HARP loans.

The Making Home Affordable website has detailed information on HARP for every state. There are look up tools to see if Fannie or Freddie owns your loan and other checklists there to see if you qualify. HARP can be a great way to lower your payments without any negative effect on your credit at all. It is almost like doing a free refinance.
