Fannie Mae pricing adjustments for 2011
Pricing adjustments based on credit scores went into effect for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in January 2011. These adjustments made FHA loans a better alternative for consumers with a sub-680 credit score.
The FHASecure refinance program is for borrowers struggling with making payments on their adjustable rate mortgage (ARM). FHASecure is for borrowers who have a good history of mortgage payments, but have had trouble keeping up after an interest level reset. FHASecure has three main eligibility requirements:
- The borrower must currently have a Non-FHA ARM that has reset
- The borrower must have sufficient income to make payments
- The borrower must have had a history of on-time payments before the interest rate reset
FHASecure offers the benefits of lower monthly payments and makes it possible for many Americans to avoid foreclosure.
