The FHA Streamline Refinance is designed for homeowners with existing FHA mortgages. FHA Streamline Refinances are the fastest, simplest way for FHA-insured homeowners to refinance their respective mortgages into current mortgage rates.

The FHA Streamline Refinance program does not require a home appraisal. Instead, the FHA allows you to use your original purchase price as your home’s current value, regardless of what your home is actually worth today. This makes it an option for underwater homeowners.

FHA Streamline Refinance is available as a fixed rate or adjustable mortgage in 15-year or 30-year term. There is no FHA prepayment penalty. FHA Streamline Refinance loans typically feature the same interest rates as “regular” FHA loans. There’s no penalty for being underwater or for having very little equity.
