Many Utah home owners would benefit greatly by taking advantage of the current federally funded conventional mortgage programs but do not. National studies show that most homeowners who qualify for today's low rates using the HARP program do not take advantage of the opportunities despite the fact that rates have been low for some time. Currently it is estimated that only 10% of those qualifying for this special refinance program are taking advantage of it. A top reason many homeowners pass up the refinance opportunity comes from the homeowner assuming they will not qualify for the refinance due to employment situations, being upside down in the home, or due to increased debt to income ratio's. The fact is that that home values throughout the state of Utah dropped, and large numbers of Utah homeowners had already tapped their equity prior to the housing crisis. Add to this that most of seen a reduction in income and it is easy to assume that refinancing to today's rates is simply not possible. This is where the HARP program for conventional loans come in to play. There are now options for refinancing Utah mortgages that would not qualify in the past. So what is HARP all about? Its about rewarding those who have paid their mortgages on time but did not qualify due to the before mentioned problems- yet could not modify the mortgage because they were paying their mortgage payments on time.
