HARP 2 Home Loan RefinanceArizona homeowners with a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac owned mortgage will be able to refinance their mortgages under the Home Affordable Refinance Program or HARP for another two years.

“More than 2 million homeowners have refinanced through HARP, proving it a useful tool for reducing risk,” said FHFA acting director Edward DeMarco, in a statement.

According to the most recent data, in January alone, one in five refinancings of Fannie and Freddie-backed loans occurred under HARP. Of the loans refinanced under the program that month, 25 percent had a loan-to-value ratio of greater than 125 percent.
