Fannie and Freddie expanded the scope of their refi programs to cover owners of second homes and one-to-four unit investment properties, on the condition:

  • no mortgage payments have been made over 30 days late within the prior 12 months;

  • the loan balance does not exceed the property value by more than 5%; and

  • the mortgage is owned or guaranteed by either Fannie or Freddie.
