About Government Refinance and Home Purchase Programs

Information and Updates on Government Mortgage Programs
Filed under HARP Program Loans or The Obama Refinance Program

In conjunction with the Obama administration announcing intentions to revamp and revitalize some of the government-backed refinance programs that are now in place, several US senators recently sent a letter to regulators urging improvements as well. We get this from a recent HousingWire report:

A group of 13 senators sent a letter to regulators Tuesday, pressing for a plan to boost mortgage refinancing for more homeowners as soon as possible. Such a plan is being widely-discussed admittedly, and now the lawmakers are ready to see some action.

“Time is of the essence and we urge you to act quickly and aggressively to ensure that responsible homeowners receive the full benefit of these lower rates,” the senators said in the letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Federal Housing Finance Agency Acting Director Edward DeMarco, and National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling.

While a letter from senators might be more show than substance, it does help show there is wide support for upgrades and changes to the HARP programs and other government-backed refinance programs. With any luck regulators will announce the changes and upgrades soon. As soon as changes are announced we will report on them here.

In the meantime, contact us in the sidebar to learn more about the government back refinance programs that are already available while rates are still hovering near all time lows.
