Really nothing right now.. If you're a VA veteran, you can finance up to 100%.. FHA allows for 97.75%, but with mortgage insurance.. You can try to reach out to your current servicer, but it's probably a wasted phone call... Then there's HARP 3.0.. Nothing solid yet, and it may never happen, but the proposal is for another refinance plan for "All other borrowers" who have not been able to take advantage of today's rates using existing programs... Stay tuned.. More info to come later.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. 480-287-5714 WilliamAcres.com

You have a Conventional loan so if Fannie and Freddie don't apply you should call your servicer and check to see if they have any programs available for you.

It depends on if it is truly underwater. There are lenders that will loan up to 95% of the value of the home for conventional and 97.75% for FHA. Otherwise you can contact your current lender and see if they will help you.

If you have an FHA, VA or USDA loan then you could possibly do a Streamline Refinance. If not then hopefully HARP 3.0 gets passed soon, then that program should be able to help you.

If you are truly underwater then your only option would be to look at doing a loan modification with your current lender. That is assuming that you really are not owned by Fannie or Freddie.

There is talk about a special program that may come out later this year for your situation that will have a net effect similar as if it was owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. There is not diffenite timing or if for sure it will happen, I have several clients waiting. The only current option today is to pay down your current balance with savings. What many client who have chosen this option are doing is to use the monthly savings to replenish their savings account with the use of the monthly savings the refinace is giving them.Good luck. Feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions or would like your specific situation analyzed. Dave Kosmecki 763-519-1100.
