I was contacted by my bank regarding a streamline refinance ( major banking service). My original appraisal of my home in 2008 was $135,000.00 &nbsp;I have made all payments on time. My credit score is considered high &gt;720 by all major reporting agencies.<br/>When speaking with the banking representative I informed them that my biggest hesitancy involved closing cost. I believe in having a savings account for emergency household needs.<br/>My request is just some general advice from those who crunch numbers regularly. Do you see the benefit? Any advice when sitting at the table with the banker/lender. Any advice and/or guidance will be accepted with a full and grateful heart. &nbsp;<br \><br \>2 replies Sat, 22 Dec 2012 23:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Another-FHA-Streamline-Refinance-Question/471993/ 2012-12-22T23:18:00Z Mississippi Harp 2.0 Lenders?

Cant do the HARP program http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Current-Lender-not-licensed-to-do-NEW-financing-in-my-state-Cant-do-the-HARP-program/439387/ I currently have my mortgage with Greentree Lending Service. It was sold to them in December 2011 by Bank of America. I called Greentree the other day to ask about refinancing using the HARP 2.0 Program. They asked me a series of questions and determined that I was eligible to use the program. But there was a problem. They are not licensed in the state of MS to do new financing. I ask them what my options are. They stated that i could use another lender to do the HARP program. I have called 6 lenders and none of them are able to do the HARP program because of the PMI. They say the PMI certificate wont transfer to the new loan. Any suggestions would really help me.<br/>Thanks Greg<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 17 Apr 2012 20:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Current-Lender-not-licensed-to-do-NEW-financing-in-my-state-Cant-do-the-HARP-program/439387/ 2012-04-17T20:14:00Z Can anyone please tell me what closing costs are typically paid for by the seller? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-anyone-please-tell-me-what-closing-costs-are-typically-paid-for-by-the-seller/434819/ 4 replies Mon, 12 Mar 2012 00:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-anyone-please-tell-me-what-closing-costs-are-typically-paid-for-by-the-seller/434819/ 2012-03-12T00:06:00Z Good credit, but bad scar on report, how to answer lenders inquiry? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Good-credit-but-bad-scar-on-report-how-to-answer-lenders-inquiry/415568/ <p>My wife and I have always had excellent credit.&nbsp; we have a 15 year mortgage.&nbsp; now that she is a stay at home mom, its tough on one income.&nbsp; we would like to refinance to 30 years and take advantage of the lower rates.&nbsp;However we got in a situation after katrina with a house at an inflated price that we later could not sell after the market settled.&nbsp; we worked with our lender to short sell it, but at the time did not make the payments for about 5 months.&nbsp; eventually the bank took ownership of the property.&nbsp; what is reported on our credit report is neither a foreclosure or a short sale.&nbsp; it just shows 5 months of no payment.&nbsp; And our credit still is decent (720 and 740).&nbsp; But the couple times I tried to refinance, once asked about those missing payments, I explain the situation to the lender and they decide to not help me.&nbsp; So, what is the appropriate response to thier inquiry?&nbsp; I really want to refi and lower our notes.</p><br \><br \>1 reply Wed, 14 Sep 2011 15:27:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Good-credit-but-bad-scar-on-report-how-to-answer-lenders-inquiry/415568/ 2011-09-14T15:27:00Z where can i apply for a fha loan and can you be a felon and still get a loan http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/where-can-i-apply-for-a-fha-loan-and-can-you-be-a-felon-and-still-get-a-loan/398565/ 3 replies Wed, 11 May 2011 19:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/where-can-i-apply-for-a-fha-loan-and-can-you-be-a-felon-and-still-get-a-loan/398565/ 2011-05-11T19:50:00Z is the a workshop out that help you straight out your credit and the sametime help you buy a home to http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/is-the-a-workshop-out-that-help-you-straight-out-your-credit-and-the-sametime-help-you-buy-a-home-to/359868/ is there any kind of program that help you with your credit in help you get a home at the sametime<br \><br \>4 replies Wed, 28 Jul 2010 16:55:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/is-the-a-workshop-out-that-help-you-straight-out-your-credit-and-the-sametime-help-you-buy-a-home-to/359868/ 2010-07-28T16:55:00Z Can we buy this $400K home? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-we-buy-this-400K-home/281050/ My wife has no credit, good or bad, because she moved here just 2 years ago.
