Changes to the FHA streamline program for Colorado homeowners have made it far more attractive and simple to reduce interest rates and lower payments, even if you owe more than your home is worth…
What is the FHA Streamline Program?
FHA Streamline refinances enable Colorado homeowners to refinance their current FHA home loans with reduced paperwork and underwriting to take advantage of lower interest rates so that borrowers can save more money, lower their monthly housing payments and in some cases change from an adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed rate mortgage loan or even shorten the term of their loans.
This means less hassle, less paper, faster processing and potentially huge savings over the life of your loan.
There are many advantages for Colorado property owners, including the availability of ‘no-cost’ refinances and even those who didn’t qualify before might qualify now.

These home loans have been available for years. Unfortunately, recent increases to mortgage insurance (MI) premiums often wiped out the savings for those refinancing.

This new change alone means thousands of dollars in savings for most borrowers.
