Are You Eligible To Refinance Your Mortgage?
It's an excellent time to be a U.S. homeowner.
Home values are climbing and have recovered all of last decade's losses; mortgage lenders are approving more home loans than during any period since 2006; and, financing continues to be dirt-cheap for those in search of a home loan.
Mortgage rates continue to troll near all-time bests, putting millions of U.S. homeowners "in the money" to do a home loan refinance.
In today's simpler mortgage market, demand for streamlined, "no appraisal" refinance loans have flourished, including the HARP 2 program and the VA Streamline Refinance.
These particular reduced-documentation programs -- and others like them -- have made the process of refinancing simple.

Streamline Refinance Types : How They Compare
There are multiple refinance types available to today's homeowners but among the most popular is the streamline refinance.
"Streamline refinance" is a generic term for a refi which requires less documentation than a typical home loan refinance. Because of this feature, streamline refinances are sometimes called "low-doc" loans.
Streamline refinances are known by different names, depending on the federal agency which offers it.

There is no timetable for the passage of HARP 3. It may never happen at all.
