Most lenders require at least 10% equity in the property on refinance transactions. You might qualify for a HARP 2.0 Loan if you don't have enough equity to qualify for a conventional refinance.

Eligible Property

Most conventional loan programs allow you to purchase single-family homes, warrantable condos, planned unit developments, and 1-4 family residences. A conventional loan can also be used to finance a primary residence, second home and investment property.
