Lower Mortgage Payment

By Terry Savage on August 19, 2015 | Housing / Real Estate

Terry, I closed on my new home in 8/2008 and refinanced in 7/2010 to lower my interest rate from 6% to 5.5% to prepare for tax increase. I found out that I don’t qualify for HARP (2.0) because of the refinance date. My house value is approximately $125,000 less than what I owe on my house ~$311,000. I make my monthly mortgage payments on time and in full and have excellent credit. Is there anyway that I can get a lower interest rate / lower mortgage payments?

Thank you
