Loans For Underwater Homeowners : HARP 2.0 Now Available - 03/20/12 11:19 AM
The new, revamped HARP program is now available in Arizona and nationwide. It was officially released Saturday, March 17, 2012 by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. HARP is an acronym.

These are the lowest mortgage rates in history and now -- with a bevy of loan programs for the nation's 11 million "underwater homeowners" including HARP, the FHA Streamline Refinance, and the VA IRRRL -- millions of U.S. homeowners can exploit the current mortgage rate environment. In this 4-minute clip from NBC's The Today Show, you'll learn about today's mortgage market (0 comments)
