With Harp Nearing Expiration, Secure One Capital is Assisting Homeowners Struggling with Harp Refinancing Approval

Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2014

In the past 6 months, tumultuous changes within the housing market have left homeowners uncertain about what to do with their greatest assettheir home. Recent changes include updates to HARP 2.0, the possibility of a HARP 3.0 approval and the Federal Reserves taper of the third round of Quantitative Easing, also known as QE3, which has resulted in rising mortgage rates. Secure One Capital has been a direct mortgage lender for 20 years and the experience to guide homeowners into the right program by taking market analysis into account and conducting a detailed needs assessment. As a FHA Endorsed Direct Lender, Secure One Capital specializes in government financing programs such as Federal Housing Administration, Veteran and HARP refinances and can help homeowners qualify, even if they have been denied in the past.

The recent appointments of Mel Watt as Federal Housing Finance Agency Director and Janet Yellen as the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, have introduced the possibility that government programs will begin to experience fundamental changes as the economy recovers. In December 2013, the Federal Reserve announced their decision to begin cutting back the bond buying program by $ 10 billion, bringing the new total to $ 75 billion per month. This announcement surprised investors who expected rates to stay down through the beginning of 2014. Still unemployment remains low and according to RealtyTrac an estimated 9.3 homes remain underwater.

Over 3 million underwater homeowners may still qualify for a HARP home refinance to lower their interest rate and monthly payments provided they have no late payments in the last 6 months. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been quietly easing underwriting guidelines for HARP refinances. For instance, in October 2013 Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced they would start using the note date to determine if a mortgage would qualify for a HARP refinance allowing more homeowners to qualify. Other changes include more generous debt-to-income ratios and decreasing the amount of time a borrower has to wait to qualify after a bankruptcy or foreclosure. As notes are doing better and the housing market begins to stabilize, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are making changes without publicizing them. This makes it essential for homeowners to speak with a trusted mortgage banker, such as Secure One Capital, to determine if they qualify or may qualify with the next round of changes.

Borrowers who are not eligible for a HARP refinance with their current lender may qualify with a different lender. Secure One Capitals commitment to excellent service has allowed homeowners to refinance even with past foreclosures, bankruptcies and delinquencies.

We are committed to our borrower. If Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac allow us, we will find a way to fund it.

HARP is a federal program that was created in March 2009 by the Federal Housing Finance Agency to help underwater homeowners refinance their mortgage without paying down principal and without having to pay mortgage insurance. HARP presents an opportunity for homeowners who are not currently behind on their mortgage payments and allows them to take advantage of todays low interest rates. Secure One Capital is an ardent advocate for HARP 3.0 or additional expansions of HARP 2.0.

The fourth quarter of 2013 marked a record-breaking quarter for what was already a strong year for Secure One Capital. This has allowed Secure One Capital to relocate to larger offices in Costa Mesa and offer new net branch opportunities. Secure One Capital is still accepting HARP applications from eligible homeowners. In order to apply, homeowners should visit apply for HARP Refinance or call (877) 810-8587 to speak with a licensed mortgage banker. For employment opportunities, visit http://www.joinsecureone.com

Andrea Bocelli Tickets Soar on BuyAnySeat.com

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 08, 2014

Andrea Bocelli can sing. From the popular ballad to the classic aria, the Italian tenor is noted for his seamless range and signature timbre. Of course, this includes his absolute control from forte to pianissimo on virtually every note.

While tragically deprived of his sight at a very young age, his complete mastery over the vocal interpretation is considered unprecedented, making him the best-selling artist in the history of classical music. Now, much to the delight of fans around the country, tickets were released yesterday to his latest six-date U.S. concert tour.

Andrea Bocelli opens at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on December 6, then performs in Houston, Dallas, Rosemont and Detroit with a wrap at Madison Square Garden on December 17, said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com.

With such a short schedule, demand is high. While some of the venues show sections that are already listed as officially sold out, were proud to offer fans the most complete and comprehensive selection of concert tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase, added Ault.

To access the entire selection of Andrea Bocelli tickets now available, customers can go to BuyAnySeat.com and search for Andrea Bocelli then select their tickets, said Ault.

After winning the Newcomers competition at the Sanremo Music Festival in 1994, the multi-talented 55-year-old musician has gone on to record 14 solo albums. These include both pop and classical music and nine complete operas. Along the way, he has sold over 80 million records worldwide making him the best-selling artist in the history of classical music. (Source: BBC News, 9/6/12)

For example, with five million units sold worldwide, his Sacred Arias became the biggest-selling classical album by a solo artist of all time. Then theres his 1997 pop album, Romanza, which sold over 20 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling album by an Italian artist of any genre in history.

The albums first single, Time to Say Goodbye, topped charts across Europe for 14 consecutive weeks, breaking the all-time sales record. The single has sold over 12 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling singles ever.

Born September 22, 1958 in Pisa, Toscana, Italy, Bocelli suffered from poor eyesight as a child. Then, tragically, he was completely deprived of his eyesight at the age of twelve following a football accident.

But, as he soon discovered, partly as a result of his blindness, he was blessed with a heightened and extraordinary sensibility one that enabled him to excel in his interpretation of lyrics and in his perception of the subtleties of musical expression.

Critics note that Bocelli exhibits a rare signature timbre that is rich, full and powerful. In addition, he has a unique versatility that ranges from the beauty of the Bel Canto to the furor of the Verismo and encompasses all styles from the sacred repertoire to the popular ballad.

Critically acclaimed as both an opera singer and pop vocalist as well as a musician, songwriter, and record producer Bocelli is also a master of numerous instruments, including: the keyboards, flute, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, harp, harmonica, guitar, drums and melodica.
