HARP Extended to December 31, 2018
A critical part of Fannie Mae's role in the Making Home Affordable® Program is the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), available for refinances of existing Fannie Mae (and Freddie Mac) loans. The goal of the refinance effort is to provide access to low-cost refinancing for responsible homeowners suffering from falling home prices. Refinancing will put responsible borrowers in a better position by reducing their monthly principal and interest payments, or moving them from a more risky loan structure (such as interest-only or short-term ARM) to a more stable product. Our solutions provide mortgage refinances with no limits on LTV, and mortgage insurance flexibilities.
