Can I refinance without 20% equity in my home?

I bought my home back in 2008, mortgage amount of 293,000 with a rate of 5.5, home is currently worth 329,000 and my credit is 759. Do I need 20% equity in order to refinance? by junipe_609_992 from Montgomery, Alabama. Nov 14th 2011 Reply

Junipe,You DO NOT need 20% equity. Your current value will, however, have a lot to do with which loan products you can choose from for this refinance. I am in Birmingham. Call me and I can give you some ideas on how to go forward.Jack ShieldsHiott Financial Corp(256) 749-7948 ph

you can refinance right now under the current HARP program if your loan is owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac... Contact a local mortgage broker, not a bank and apply with them... they work with a number of different lenders and will find the exact loan product for your particular scenario.. WilliamAcres.com

The lower the LTV the better your rate will be without buying it down but you can refinance with most lenders all the way up to 105% of your current value from your appraisal. With your credit as long as your debt to income is in line you will be good. Let me know if you have any other questions.
