Qualify to refinance even if you’ve been denied in the past.
The U.S. government’s Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) is a great option for homeowners who have little or no equity, or owe more than their home is worth.
HARP’s easy qualification requirements and streamlined refinance process have made it possible for nearly 3.5 million Americans to take advantage of today’s low rates since the program began in 2009. Closing costs are often lower than you’d expect, and you may not even need an appraisal.
To see if you qualify, just answer a few questions online or call a Licensed Loan Advisor at (888) 353-1558.
HARP could help you save big on your monthly payments and meet your financial objectives.
Homeowners who refinance with HARP save an average of $189 per month on their payments, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency.*
If your loan meets these criteria, you could be eligible for HARP:
- Your loan must be owned or backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac
- Your loan must have closed on or before May 31, 2009
- You must have a good history of keeping up with your mortgage payments

HARP is just one of several options available to homeowners who want to refinance. It’s unique in that it’s the only refinance program that allows borrowers who have little to no equity in their homes to benefit from low interest rates.
In many cases, you won’t need to get an appraisal, but the only way to know for sure is to talk with a Licensed Loan Advisor. Call (888) 353-1558 t0 to get in touch with a Loan Advisor now.

Yes! HARP was designed to help responsible homeowners who are current on their mortgages but have been unable to take advantage of lower interest rates because their homes have decreased in value.
We hope so! If your interest rate is a lot higher than current interest rates, you should see a decrease in your payments. Homeowners who refinance with HARP save an average of $189 per month on their payments, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency.*
