    Hey everyone, i just wanted to inform everyone of the difference between HARP and HAMP. HARP is for homeowners that are not behind on their payments. HAMP is for homeowners that ARE behind on their payments. Both program guidelines are pretty much the same (primary residence, 125% value, etc). Hope it helps someone. The document did say the programs will end June 30th, 2010 although i think Obama may extend the programs. Good luck to you all!

    HARP is a refinance product.
    HAMP is a modification product.

    HARP allows homeowners who are able to refinance to a lower fixed rate do so with higher LTV ratios.

    HAMP - can be current or past due. No LTV or DTI ratios to account for (mostly just the 31% front DTI for PITI)

"Hello Moe, I just wanted to tell you, your website has saved my life (literally), I stumbled on your site in the middle of losing my home, I was able to network with people going through the same thing as I am. I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
