Are you HARPing?

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) expires at the end of 2015. It’s been a great opportunity for millions of Americans to refinance to lower rates even when they owed more than the value of the home. But some estimates indicate there are still millions of eligible borrowers who have not taken advantage of it. Is this an opportunity for Credit Unions to be memberlicious?I think so………….HARP is truly a great program for borrowers. It can save them hundreds of dollars on a monthly payment or reduce the term of their loan. There are criteria to qualify for HARP, but the main points are below:A borrower eligible for HARP if they meet all of the following criteria:The mortgage must be owned or guaranteed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.The mortgage must have been sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac on or before May 31, 2009.The mortgage cannot have been refinanced under HARP previously unless it is a Fannie Mae loan that was refinanced under HARP from March-May, 2009.The current loan-to-value (LTV) ratio must be greater than 80%.The borrower must be current on the mortgage at the time of the refinance, with a good payment history in the past 12 months. continue reading »last_img read more

Rooney eager to beat Man Utd in FA Cup fifth-round, vows to celebrate if he nets

first_img Loading… Read Also: Man City’s Premier League clash with Arsenal set to hold next week“There are targets there that we want to hit as a club.”When asked whether he would celebrate if he scores against the Red Devils, Rooney finished: “Of course, I’m a Derby County player.“I know this game means a lot to the fans, to the players, to the staff here, and of course I’ll celebrate.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Wayne Rooney insists he wants his former club Manchester United to lose to Derby County on Thursday.Advertisement The Red Devils legend will captain the Rams when they host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side for a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Rooney, who is United’s all-time record scorer with 253 goals, won five Premier League titles, the Champions League, an FA Cup and three League Cups during a 13-year spell at Old Trafford between 2004 to 2017.After spending the 2017/18 campaign at boyhood club Everton, Rooney moved to MLS side DC United, before returning to England with Derby in January.Now, Rooney and Derby will be looking to cause an FA Cup upset at Pride Park.“Manchester United is a club I love,” he said in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT. “I loved my time there.“But for this 90 minutes or 120 minutes, whatever it is, I want them to lose.“After the game, I’ll go back to being a fan of theirs. If you’re a Manchester United fan, I’m sure they’d want to hear the same thing from their players who have been at other clubs.“Football is a game where players move on from clubs and obviously I spent a long time at Manchester United. I go back and watch the games.“But for this one, I want Derby to win and it doesn’t take away my feelings for Manchester United.”Rooney, playing in a midfield role, has scored four goals and created a further two since making his Derby debut in January.The 34-year-old felt he was always destined to face United when both clubs booked their place in the FA Cup fifth-round.“It was always going to happen,” added England’s record goalscorer. “It was always going to be Manchester United or Chelsea, obviously with Frank [Lampard, who left Derby to manage Chelsea], as well.“We got Manchester United, they’ll be favourites to win, but we’ll be there trying to cause an upset.”Despite playing in two Champions League finals and being involved in close Premier League title run-ins, Rooney feels the same pressure playing for Derby in the second tier.The Rams have an outside chance of making the Championship play-offs – they are eight points off a top-six spot with 10 games to go.Rooney added: “It’s not less pressure. I’m captain of Derby County and we’re pushing to try to get into the Premier League.“I put that pressure on myself to help them do that, I put that pressure on my teammates to try to do that.“Although I’m not going for Premier League titles or Champions League titles, the pressure still remains.last_img read more

Pac-10 matchup on tap

first_imgAs the USC women’s basketball team prepares to host rival UCLA on Sunday, one statistic has the team’s attention.The winner will take over sole possession of third place in the Pac-10 Conference.Ready · Senior guard Heather Oliver anticipates a tough game. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan “This is more than just a rivalry game,” sophomore guard Ashley Corral said. “Whoever wins this game moves ahead of the other [in the conference standings].”That doesn’t mean the Women of Troy (9-6, 3-1) are discounting the importance of beating their crosstown rival. Even newcomers like first-year coach Michael Cooper are well aware of how heated the rivalry can be.“We almost don’t need to win another game if we beat UCLA,” Cooper quipped. “It’s going to be a big game.”Corral, a Washington native, said she learned what the rivalry truly meant once she stepped foot on campus.“As soon as you get to USC you realize the rivalry,” Corral said. “I’ve never been a Bruins fans. I don’t ever plan on being one.”Beating UCLA will be no easy task for the Women of Troy. UCLA (10-5, 3-1) took No. 2 Stanford to the wire last weekend before losing 65-61. By comparison, USC lost to the Cardinal earlier this season by 20 points.“It’s going to be a tough game,” senior guard Heather Oliver said. “They came really close to Stanford last weekend.”Cooper said one of his challenges over the past week has been keeping his team on an even keel.“We don’t want to get too hyped up for [the game],” he said. “But we also don’t want to be too low.”Another challenge for the Women of Troy will be the physicality of UCLA. Cooper said that the Bruins, while not a particularly tall team, have a lot of girth down low. Still, he expects his players to hold their own in the paint.“We’ve been undersized against everyone and we’ve overcome that all season long,” he said.One area where USC should have an advantage is at the end of the game. If the score is close late, count on the Women of Troy coming out on top. USC has won all three of its conference games this season by four points or less.“We’re starting to realize what it takes to win games,” Oliver said. “We learned a lot from last year when we lost a lot of close games. Now we’re relaxed.”The Women of Troy will need to bottle up some of that experience for what should be a tightly contested game.Tip off is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.last_img read more
