Where’s the Promised Government Loan Money (HARP) for Distressed Homeowners?

THE HISTORY OF HARP Since 2007, when the American housing bubble burst, untold numbers of homeowners have found themselves in the dire dilemma of seeing the value of their homes sink below the amount they owe on their mortgages, putting them “under water” in mortgage jargon.

HARP Loans For Underwater Homeowners To Refinance Into Lower Mortgage Rates

Article by Karan Agarwal For much of the past year, mortgage rates have been at or near record low points.

Homeowners who lack equity in their homes are frequently unable to meet the loan-to-value (LTV) ratios required by lenders in order to refinance their mortgages. These borrowers may be missing out on thousands of dollars worth of savings. In response to this situation, the government created the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP). … Read entire article »

In layman’s terms a foreclosure is the legal process a lender must go through in order to take back a property after a homeowner has defaulted on the terms of their mortgage. Banks are not in the business of owning properties, and therefore every bank has some type of Asset Management department specifically for liquidating non-performing assets. So, as a homeowner, foreclosure doesn’t necessarily mean all hope is lost. One of the ways a lender can liquidate a non-performing or bad asset (mortgage) is to allow a … Read entire article »
