Are you looking to refinance your mortgage? Whether you have a loan with us or not you may qualify to refinance your current mortgage with New Hampshire Housing.
Home Flex Streamline refinancing: If you currently have a loan that is government insured through Rural Development (USDA/RD), the Veterans Administration (VA), or the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) then you may qualify for our Home Flex Streamline refinancing. Home Flex Streamline refinancing features low interest rates and no appraisal requirements. This product is only available for owner-occupied, principal residence properties.
Home Preferred refinancing: New Hampshire Housing is now able to offer a conventional refinancing option that offers up to 97% loan-to-value (LTV) with a “preferred” low mortgage insurance coverage requirement. With the Home Preferred product borrowers are allowed limited cash out. This product is only allowed on owner-occupied, principal residences.
If you are interested in learning more about either of these two great refinancing options, simply contact us by e-mail or call us directly at 1-800-649-0470.
