Refinance Test and Resources

Last Modified: August 27, 2014

The Refinance Test evaluates a borrower’s ability to successfully refinance a balloon balance at maturity. We're providing you with this tool to:

  • Make the test results transparent to you early in the UW process.
  • Encourage discussion between you and our underwriting staff to assess your deal in relation to the test results.

As always, when a loan does not pass the test, this is simply an indicator for you to discuss the parameters sooner with your underwriter. It does not necessarily mean Freddie Mac will not buy the loan.
