FHFA PR is HERE. From the PR I have constructed an Excel workbook in my public Excel SkyDrive that shows refinance and HARP activity by state, with a detailed breakout of Oregon data.
Direct link to the Excel file is HERE and it is embedded below. (Worksheet with detailed Oregon data displayed by default; data for all states and link to data source are included in other worksheets in the workbook).
Some Oregon Observations
- The percent of HARP loans that went to borrowers at LTV 105% and above was 28% in March compared to 10% since the start of HARP in April of 2009.
- In March there were 515 HARP refinances with LTV above 105%; that is nearly half of the 1,044 HARP refinances with LTV above 105% so far this year and more than 1/6th of ALL HARP refinances above 105% since the inception of the program in April 2009.
- Total FHFA refinances in March were 8,133; there were 19,252 FHFA refinances so far this year
