HARP Loan Refinancing
The Federal Government has issued a new program in which homeowners who owe more than their home's value can now refinance their loans. Designed to help homeowners take advantage of lower rates, this program now opens doors for those with good credit, and a good credit history to apply to refinance.
For details on Harp Loan refinancing call Jeffrey Beattie at 720-598-0506.
The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) issued by the federal government assists homeowners in refinancing their mortgages. Mortgages must be backed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae in order for homeowners to qualify.
In a climate where homeowners have refinanced at rock bottom rates, those with homes that have decreased in value haven't had many options for refinancing. Especially when they haven't any equity in their homes. But the HARP program creates a way for homeowners with or without equity to qualify for a home refinance when they are "upside down" on their mortgages.
Not sure if your loan is guaranteed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae? Contact us on 720-598-0506 and we'll check your loan for you.
Qualifying for HARP
Wondering if you qualify for the HARP program? Here are a few guidelines...
- The mortgage MUST be owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
- The mortgage MUST have been sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac on or before May 31, 2009.
- The mortgage CANNOT have been refinanced under HARP previously unless it is a Fannie Mae loan that was refinanced under HARP from March-May, 2009.
- The current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio MUST be greater than 80%
- The borrower MUST be current on the mortgage at the time of the refinance, with no late payment in the past six months and no more than one late payment in the past 12 months.
- You have a reasonable ability to pay the new mortgage payments.
- The refinance improves the long term affordability or stability of your loan.
How do I apply for HARP?
Applying for HARP is as simple as contacting our mortgage office in Centennial. We'll first ask to see your current mortgage statement to determine if your loan is backed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.
Then, we'll have you fill out a loan application that will give us all of the information that we need to determine if you qualify for the loan. Refinancing through a HARP loan takes the same process as any refinance, and we'll need to pull your credit history, current income, past payment history, etc. Begin gathering tax statements and pay stubs for the process.
As loan specialists who perform HARP loans, we'll walk you through each step of the process.
Yes! We would definitely use this team again any time. The entire team was extremely helpful in every aspect an step. Jeff and his team was always available to answer any questions. Checking and double checking our documents and crunching numbers within record times during the actual looking stages of a home to find the right one. This team didn't stop till we signed our closing documents. Loved them!
We couldn't have done it without Jeff, Anne, and Brenda. They stayed on top of everything throughout the whole process. We'd definitely recommend them!
Absolutely loved working with Jeff and Anne. They are so knowledgeable and personable. They are available on evenings and weekends to answer all questions. My realtor was horrible and they pretty much assumed the role of realtor and mortgage broker. I have referred them to friends and will continue to do so. Amazing experience!
Jeff Beattie and the entire Alliance Mortgage Group team were professional and responsive throughout the refi process. Special circumstances required increased attention to detail which they managed competently and built my confidence in their team. They will get my exclusive referral for anyone looking for a business with a professional and personal approach when needing to refinance.
The team at AMG were so helpful and knowledgeable about everything we needed to make sure this refinance went smooth! Jeff and his team were there every step of the way to ensuring all my questions were answered and I was completely comfortable with the process. I wouldn't use anyone else to handle or mortgage needs.
We were purchasing a second home in the mountains and had a couple complications with the seller which turned a routine process into a difficult one. Jeff was there every step of the way with us. He and his team were so helpful and knowledgeable about everything we needed to make sure the deal went through! They also were very easy for our real estate agent to work with as well. They provided the documentation needed quickly and were extremely thorough to make sure we hit our deadlines. Without AMG Lending and their hard work our deal would not have happened. We thank Jeff and his team for going above and beyond. We wouldn't use anyone else to handle or mortgage needs and refer everyone we know looking to buy a home or refinancing.
Jeff and his team were completely amazing! I came in needing funds, and Jeff was able to assist with my difficult situation with apparent ease. I absolutely cannot recommend him and his team enough. They were extremely friendly, kind, and efficient. Thank you!!
My husband and I used Jeff Beattie for our refinance. We have refinanced previously and I have never seen such professional and comprehensive service. He explained the process completely from the start and kept us advised as to each step in a timely manner. Whenever we had questions, he promptly responded and made sure we understood all of the details involved and explained in fully comprehensive and comprehensible manner. The refinance was completed in a reasonable time frame and he was most courteous and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff.
What an amazing group of folks. So knowledgeable, professional, awesome customer service, prompt follow up, getting the best in all services, friendly...they were top notch all the way around
Every point of buying our home went so smoothly, without a hitch! Thank you so much for helping us buy our dream home! We would recommend Jeff to anyone!
