what programs are available to refinance mortgages on secondary residences?

This was my primary residence from May 2007 to November 2008.  I changed jobs and had to move out of state.  I'm trying to sell the home and currently have it rented.  Need to refinance at a lower interest rate to make the payment more affordable for the long-term (not sure how long it will take to sell given the current economy).

As far as programs you have conforming fannie mae./freddie mac and others. At the end the property must qualify under loan guidelines based on investment guidelines. If the property is listed most banks will not de a new loan on it based on the risk of the property being sold and the bank not making any money or in a likelihood of being abandoned. However there are a few banks that will do the loan with 1 day not being listed. If you truly do not want to keep the property I recommend to simply sell it and move on.

If the house is currently listed for sale, you will not be able to refinance it.

You also have the option of seller financing the home by a contract for deed transaction or turn it over to a management company in the homes area and let them deal with it.
