What is the HARP?

Introduced in March 2009, HARP enables borrowers with little or no equity to refinance into more affordable mortgages without new or additional mortgage insurance.

Through HARP, you can get a lower interest rate (which means less out-of-pocket costs each month), get a shorter loan term, or change from an adjustable to fixed-rate mortgage. There’s no minimum credit score needed, either.

HARP refinancing can mean significant savings by:

  • Building equity faster—shorter term options may be available
  • Lower closing costs because an appraisal is not usually required

Modified fees
Certain risk-based fees for borrowers who refinance into shorter-term loans have been reduced.
