The recent announcement of President Obamas “Making Home Affordable” plan will allow millions of current homeowners the chance to refinance or modify their home loans into new 2% fixed rate mortgages. The savings, through interest alone, easily add up to hundreds of dollars per month. Here is how this $75 billion housing bailout plan works:

-Homeowners who have seen their home or property values drop by 15% or more as a result of this housing crisis, are in luck. Millions of homeowners who purchased their home in the past few years now are stuck with mortgages that are actually worth more than the home. Now, you will still be approved for a 2% fixed rate finance even if you owe up to 5% more than your home is actually worth.

-Homeowners who have been able to make every one of their mortgage payments on time and in full for the past 12 months, or longer, in a row, can now refinance into the Government backed fixed rate 2% home loan. All homeowners will qualify for this refinancing part of the “Making Home Affordable” plan as long as you have not been late or missed any payments.

-”Financial Hardships” such job loss, income loss or reduction, hospital bills or tuition payments, high interest debts, or a whole list of other things will help a homeowner qualify and be approved for a home loan modification. This loan modification will allow homeowners who have missed or been late on a few mortgage payments and are struggling financially. Include a handwritten letter stating your “Financial Hardships” and hand sign it. Attach this letter to your loan application for a 2% fixed rate, government backed, home mortgage loan modification.

-A homeowner who is lucky enough to have a mortgage financed or backed from Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae will be automatically eligible, regardless of your financial situation, for a 2% home loan refinance or modification. This is possible, again, because of President Obamas and the Federal Governments “Making Home Affordable” plan.

By taking advantage of this great time for refinancing or loan modification, a homeowner can easily save hundreds of dollars every single month, in interest savings alone. This easily adds up, in most cases, to tens of thousands of dollars in savings over the course of the mortgage, which is usually 30 years. Homeowners who are having financial problems, or think there mortgage payments are too high and they could do better, should look into the potential savings refinancing or modification of your home loan are. Odds are, especially using this “Making Home Affordable” plan, you will qualify for a much better home mortgage than you have now.
