Reason 11 - Mortgage is paid off.  Early.
Jul 19, 2013 11:11AM

My husband and I have tried to refinance with the mortgage company that currently holds our mortgage. We have been with the company since 2003 and for 15 years before that with our prior home. We have NEVER missed a payment on their loan or any bill. We have excellent credit scores. Are you ready for this........we don't make enough money!! Well, does it make sense that we make enough money for the higher payment but not for the lower one?????

Where in Las Vegas can a home owner refinance.  Miracles happen and guess what for some reason or miracle my underwater mortgage suddenly became $100 above what I previously paid for the house, that puts me about $4,000 over the value, hurah, hurah, huh, no way, even with a credit score of 813, never missed a payment, no debt and 2 secured incomes, these two mortgages take up 54% of my income, and for some reason, I cannot get refinanced, I don't get all the stories that are being told about how they got this and how they got that, where are you pulling this crap out of, pray tell.  I have been through every damn program and at the end of the 6-8 months all of a sudden they don't have the money anymore.  I know for a fact that Nevada Hardest Hit Program has been a scam for politicians for sure.  They led people down the garden path of qualifications, then at the end of the time period they didn't have any more money because the people stole it, now they want people to help them to investigate this theft, give me a break, help you, you didn't help me after all your promises and my being the good one to pay all the payments on time and did everything right, so I thought.

.......which is why I streamlined. Start to finish, 3 weeks. Based only on your payment history. No surveys, no credit checks, no money down at closing unless you want to. Cut my interest rate in half.

I can't refinance becuase the banks want me to pay for the bills on a wealthy mans houses I don't even own. I remodeled a couple of his rental houses which he then sold , kept the money and refused to pay me. The law system says thats my problem. Even with leins I put on his houses he was legally able to sell them and stick me with the bills. So for all that work I did, salaries I paid, and supplies the banks are saying I owe the money on his houses and won't refinance me now, until I pay off those bills on the houses he sold behind my back. America legal system is totally in facor of prtoecting the crooked rich and punishing us hard workers by stealing our money by shoving wealthy peoples bills down us middleclass throats.

One of the latest rip offs here in Texas is the banks now require a survey of your property boundaries.  You know those SOBs are up to their ears in some corruption here.

The simple reason people aren't refinancing is that the banks got the bale out but will not pass along the benefits to homeowners who are paying for homes worth less than their mortgages.  They will not consider applications for changing one's mortgage.  Why would they?  There is no government pressure to make the banks take back 6-7% mortgages and replace them with 3-4% ones.  It is again the same old problem with big corporations..GREED!!!

 I noticed that Mr MDiMarzo didn't specify which bank he worked for! If in fact this is true why are you not out front! Problems with the BANK! Loose your job? Seems like it would be a good plug for your bank!

I've received an offer from the bank to refinance under the Obama

administration's plan to force banks to help homeowners. However, I am in Chapter

13 bankruptcy, and even though I would like to refinace, and the refinance would help lower my'

payments and total interest paid, a rule says if you are in bankruptcy

you cannot refinance.  So much for getting "help" from that program

As a home owner with great credit and who has paid his mortgage on time for 10 years, and tons of equity it's been frustrating not being able to refi to a shorter term with not enough gross adjusted income to qualify. After getting a letter from my bank who services my mortgage, I found out that I qualify and am now in the underwriting process for a 15 yr fixed rate at 3%. Does anyone else have any experience with this refi program? First I was told that it would be approx 90 days and now its 120. I'm hopeful but not holding my breath.

You need good credit, better to go with a credit union, and best if you go more than 1% below your current rate and get a fixed rate.  It is also get to pay extra on your payments each month.

If you have an existing mortgage why not just make extra payments every month ? That way you are effectively lowering your interest rate without going through the pain of a refinance. And the icing on the cake is you're not giving the greedy banks more money for the refinance, you're taking money away from them by prepaying and shorting them out of the interest !!

 

That's what I've been doing for years.....screw Bank of America, every month I make a payment I laugh about all the interest I'm taking away from them.

Should read "or the status of your current loan."

I read about the efforts to re-finance, the reasons given(you know, the banks etc) the political B.S. about Obama and his cronies but I haven't read about anyone contacting N.A.C.A..com.  Why is that?  You would rather bleat about Obama?  N.A.C.A. 's charter is to assist without being limited by good credit on the status of your current loan.  Sooo, get with your buddies and complain about Obama and his cronies or pull your head out and do something yourself.

I refinanced in November 2010, I was never told my refinance was part of HARP 1. The up side is , I got my refinance and a lower rate. The downside was, today I cannot refinance under HARP 2.0, because It's a ONE TIME DEAL. Regardless if your having a hardship because of the Markets actions or of the Governments actions, HARP 2.0 has proven worthless to many. They wonder why many have not used HARP 2.0..  Why is it the Banks and the Government can change things around at will, and Homeowners can't do anything. It just goes to show how backwards the system is. Ideally, if your locked in a loan, lets say at 4% on your original loan and the market then has lower rates available, or you lost value because of the illegal actions of the Banks crashing the market, Why is it you have to refinance? Your rate should just be reduced or your value readjusted. Why would they, The Banks and the Government require you to refinance to get a lower rate when you already have an existing loan and don't really need a new one, It's only a ploy to nail you for new loan costs and expenses, and origination fees. Just readjust the loan and reset and extend it back to 30 years at the lower rate. That way it becomes an "Adjusted Loan" and not a refinance. You already own the home and the loan, why should you have to start all over like a new purchase.. A simple drop of 1% in interest rate can reduce payments for some in the thousands and others in the hundreds, depending on the value and especially if your retired or on disability and have a limited income. Harp 2.0 should apply to ALL American's regardless if the previous refinance was done under Harp 1, it makes no sense.. The HARP program was supposed to help people, especially Seniors, Disabled and Low Income American's. Instead it has turned into a fiasco, where your told Sorry, That's all folks.....  I am a supporter of Forgiving all loans for homeowners, IF their lending Banks were part of and involved in the most resent "Class Action Law Suit" that was settled out of court in 2012. These Major players received a SLAP ON THE WRIST, While American Homeowners, and the American People got SCREWED.

the major problem point blank is that fannie and freddie were forced by obama to buy up the **** mortgates while the banks like bank of new york maintained the 'credible' low-risk mortgages in their portfolios.  if you are a **** mortage owner under freddie or fannie...you can refinance under HARP (govt bailout program for the delinquent and less than honorable homeowners...you know, the one's who shouldn't have a mortgage in the first place.  HARP I, II, and III is so generous that obamanigga will guarantee up to 125 percent of your mortgage so to cover the 'low market value'...all of this on the backs of those of us who are not **** mortgage owners.

 

so **** u obama and your low-life strap hanging 'takers'.
