Help Is Available For Underwater Homeowners

with No Comments

Florida’s Hardest Hit Principal Reduction Program reopens for applications Thursday, May 15. If you are underwater but still current on your mortgage payments, this may be the program for you!

This program assists eligible homeowners who have remained current the last 24 months on their payments, and who owe at least 125% more on their home than its current market value, commonly referred to as the home being “underwater.” Up to $50,000 in assistance is provided to reduce the principal balance of the first mortgage, bringing the loan-to-value to no less than 100%. Among other stringent requirements, the home must be the primary residence and the homeowner’s income has to fall below 140% AMI, adjusted for household size. In St. Johns, Clay and Duval Counties, that would be $88,480 for a family of four.
