CoreLogic Announces HARP 2.0 Refi Data Services

March 26, 2012

CoreLogic has announced a new service designed to help originators identify potential Home Affordable Refinance Program 2.0 (HARP 2.0) refinance prospects. The HARP 2.0 program was introduced in late 2011 to assist qualified underwater homeowners in refinancing their mortgages. CoreLogic leverages a proprietary database, patented valuation technologies, comprehensive lien information and new patent-pending analytics to identify more than 2.3 million borrowers with a ‘strong likelihood’ of potential eligibility for refinancing through the HARP 2.0 program.
“The new HARP 2.0 guidelines provide a great opportunity for homeowners with negative equity who were previously unable to take advantage of historically low interest rates and refinance their existing mortgages,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and chief executive officer of CoreLogic. “It may not be clear to homeowners how HARP 2.0 eligibility requirements apply in their circumstance. CoreLogic is uniquely positioned to help mortgage originators identify qualified homeowners who are highly likely to be eligible for the HARP program. This will allow the originators to focus their educational and sales efforts on homeowners who will likely be motivated to refinance.”
Using a specific list of eligibility criteria, database filters and derivation techniques are used to identify potential HARP 2.0 eligible loans. The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio information is calculated using industry-leading CoreLogic automated valuation models (AVMs). In addition, to ensure the most up-to-date information is available, CoreLogic re-evaluates its HARP 2.0 eligibility database with refreshed data monthly, providing originators access to updated and/or new leads in either single prospect or batch forms.
“By utilizing CoreLogic proprietary databases and analytics teams, we can provide a targeted and customized list of very high probability HARP 2.0 refinance-eligible candidates,” said Dianna Serio, chief data officer for CoreLogic. “Our ability to provide specific homeowner data, highly accurate loan-to-value estimates, identification of lenders, current owner occupancy status, and liens associated with a property can be especially helpful to originators looking to build or defend their current portfolio.”

►Borrower name(s)
