    I know this was released April 1st but are any lenders accepting applicaitons on it yet?

    If you’re referring to Fannie’s DU Refi Plus program, yes we believe they are. You should contact your servicer first in order to get strated.

    Thanks for commenting,

    I have an interest only loan, can I still qualify for the DU RefiPlus program? I was told I wasn’t eligible for this program?

    Above all else, you must have a loan owned by Fannie or Freddie to be eligible for this program. The fact that your loan is an IO isn’t enough to exclude you from the program. Without knowing any other info about your situation, that’s really all I can tell you.

    Log onto http://www.makinghomeaffordable.gov/eligibility.html to find out if you are eligible for the government’s latest loan mod and refi programs.

    I hope this helps, thanks for commenting,
