Conventional loans are a great option for any borrower with good credit and a small down payment. These loans usually require at least a 5% down payment of your own funds to purchase a home. However, for any conventional loan with less than 20% down, you will be subject to mortgage insurance on the loan. There are a couple of ways that the mortgage insurance can be paid. It can be a monthly charge on the loan or you can pay it in a lump sum up front. The up front lump sum can be a great option if you are purchasing a home and the seller is covering your closing cost. If you can put 20% towards down payment, a conventional loan can be one of the most affordable mortgage choices you can make!

The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) is a government program that was established in 2009 for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac held mortgages. HARP provides the opportunity for homeowners to refinance at a lower rate when they have "under-water" mortgages. A HARP refinance addresses situations where the homeowners' property value has fallen, causing them to no longer to qualify under traditional underwriting criteria. Homeowners with a loan owned by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae have the opportunity to refinance without an appraisal.
Who qualifies for HARP 2.0? A HARP refinance only applies to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac mortgages. You must be able to afford the new lower payment. Your current mortgage must be up to date with no late payments in the past twelve months. Your payments on the new loan must be more affordable or more stable than they are on the existing loan. The maximum loan to value cap has been removed on home owners looking to refinance into a fixed rate mortgage. However, if you are looking to refinance into an adjustable rate mortgage, the maximum LTV is set at 105%.
