However, they would like to take advantage of today's lower interest rates but have not been able to because their homes will not appraise for the value needed to do a new loan. If your loan is owned be either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and was originated prior to 5/31/09, there is a new program that may allow you to refi and take advantage of the new rates. Be aware that even though you may be making your payment to a bank like Wells Fargo, Fannie or Freddie may own the loan and you could be eligible. You can find out on their individual websites.
