Home Affordable Refinance Program

HARP - the Home Affordable Refinance Program - has been extended through December 2018.  HARP was created by FHFA specifically to help homeowners who are current on their mortgage payments, but who are underwater on their mortgages. That is, they owe almost as much or more than the current value of their homes. To see if you qualify for HARP go to 
HARP.gov.
