In an address in Fall Church, VA this morning President Obama fleshed out some of his new plan to help more Americans take advantage of the record low rates we are currently experiencing. The plan reportedly will lean heavily on the FHA and is designed to reduce barriers for folks who are not able to take advantage of the government-backed refinance programs already in place.
The major kink in the new plan is that the Republican controlled congress must approve it and the $5-10 billion price tag that comes along with it. Odds of that happening don’t seem high.
Even so, there are several very useful government-backed refinance programs that are already up and running well, including the FHA streamline program, the HARP program, and the VA IRRRL program. Contact us in the the sidebar to learn which programs might assist your family.
