FHA Short Refinance

The FHA short refinance has been in the news lately. The Housing Bill has sparked more discussion on the FHA refinance short option. The fact is that lenders have a loss severity level that is a function of market values and delinquency level. In many cases, the highest net present value for a mortgage refinance is realized when the lender accepts a short payoff to settle the mortgage debt.

The result can be called an FHA short refinance.
