I am preparing tax return and looking a 1098 in Box 1 has $61,000 of mortgage interest but in the detail of payments has only about $20,000K of interest. The house was sold during year and mortgage paid off - around $485K balance on loan and it was a Conv Jumbo PayOption ARM..Question: Why the difference and is the $60K of interest correct. Thanks.

We currently have a 1st mortgage with a balance of 150,000 and a home equity loan with a 39000 balance. Our home value is $190,000. We also have unsecured debt totaling $86,000. We are current on our bills but wanted to know if we could get a loan or 2nd mortgage that would consolidate our current home equity loan and unsecured debt into one loan of $125,000 and set up a payment plan to pay back $750.00 the 1st and last week of each month?

My mortgage balance is 260,000. Market value for my house is only 160,000 and is going down. I am two months behind on payments. I would like to keep my house but can't keep up with payments due to reduced income. Is it possible to reduce mortgage balance to current market value, because that would be only way for me to afford monthly payment? Thank You, DH!

Asked 01/14/2009 09:29 am CT (West Bloomfield, MI)

I have a 7-yr balloon due March, 2010, with current rate of 4% and (by then) a remaining balance of $260k. This was originally my home but is now a rental property. Home values in Michigan have plummeted. I have tried to refinance now to lock in a 30-yr fixed rate, but since it is considered a rental property, the loan/value ratio needs to be 25% and I'm no where near that. Since I cannot refinance now and definitely won't be able to when the balloon is due as values fall another 10%-20% (as forecasted in Detroit), what happens? (1) Can I refinance with my current lender for a 30-yr fixed with a reasonable interest rate now or in March next year? (2) Should I begin to have these conversations with the lender now? (3) Do they amortize the remaining balance over the remaining 23 yrs? (4) How high can the rate go? I have friends in a similar situation (with their primary home) and rates have gone up to 10%+? (5) How do I keep the rate down and amortize the remaining balance for 30 yrs? I do not know what to do. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Asked 11/24/2008 02:08 pm CT (Sparks, NV)

I own a single family home with a mortgage balance of approx $175K on a 6.25% FHA 30-yr fixed. The home's market value has declined steadily and is now worth approx $140K. I am not behind on any payments yet, and my credit is excellent with a current FICO of 768. I'm expecting a 20% reduction in work hours - and thus a 20% reduction in income - effective 1/1/09. This loss of job hours will inevitably result in falling behind on the mortgage payments at their current level. Will I likely be more successful in approaching the mortgage company for a loan modification for 1) a substantially lower interest rate on the current balance (propose approx 3%); or 2) reducing the balance to the realistic market value; or 3) some other measure or combination of the above?

Asked 08/19/2008 03:29 pm CT (Jackson, MS)

My late husband bought a mobile home in 1998. I was not listed on the mortgage nor did I sign anything with regard to the purchase of this home. There was no land or any other type of collateral put up against this home. He died in 2004 and shortly after I moved from the mobile home. The mortgage company repossessed the home and sold it at auction. Now they want the estate of my deceased husband to pay the remaining balance (2 years after they sold it). My husband did not have a will. Can they hold me responsible for this money?

Asked 07/10/2008 12:08 pm CT (Lawrence, KS)

Our house is appraised at $150,000. We owe $97,000 at 6% (30 year). The 5/1 ARM is up next October. We owe $25,000 as a HELOC and the remaining $25,000 as a home improvemnt loan from our bank. We would like to refinance the entire amount into a 30 year fixed rate. However, both Countrywide and our bank will not refinance unless we pay off the balance of the others loan. We have two cars paid off and less than $10,000 in unsecured debt. Our gaol is to get rid of the HELOC (which we never seem to make up ground on). Any suggestions?

We want to buy another home but are having a hard time selling the one he has thru SHIP and we can't buy another house without showing this one as rental property, which is a no no for SHIP. Is it possible to refinance the balance of the money owed to SHIP, along w/ the balance of the home loan to get away from SHIP?

Asked 05/06/2008 05:02 pm CT (Marlboro, NY)

I'm getting married. My fiance owns his own home. The mortgage and deed are both in his name. He owes about 75% of the value of the home on the loan. We want to get a Home Equity, with me as the primary, for a better interest rate. Can he just add me to the deed? Does the primary mortgage holder have to OK me being added to the deed since I'm not on the mortgage? Also, if I need to be on the primary mortgage, can I just be added to the mortgage without having to refinance the primary loan?? Note: the primary mortgage has a great interest rate, so I don't want to refinance it. Also, I have excellent credit and have already been preapproved elsewhere for well over the mortgage balance.

I cosigned a mortgage 5 years ago and it is up for re signing. I no longer live there and want off of the mortgage. If I do not cosign again I am being told that the other party will have to sell because of bad credit. What happens to my half of the deed, and what if he can not sell for the balance of the mortgage. Am I responsible?

We currently have a 30 fixed at 6.5 (103K) and a 2nd mortgage at 7.0 (19K). We have done a lot of improvements to the home and are considering refi. Our estimated home value is @ 300K. We have 7K on a credit card and about 7K in the bank. I also have a personal loan with a balance of @3400. My questions are: we would like to refi to a 15 yr at the best rate and cash out to satisfy the home equity loan and the credit card balances, leaving us with a small bit of money to complete a final home project. We plan to stay in the home for the balance of the 15 yr. mortgage. Our credit is good. Are we in a postion to refi and does it make sense? We really want to reduce the mortgage term and satisfy the loan and credit balances. These seems to be the best way to get to that point. Your thoughts?

My mother and bough a home together in 03 suing the 80/20 principle which mean we have two mortgages. We are both listed on them both and share a 50/50 payment and ownership rule. I am having a nightmare time applying for an auto loan due to my dept to income ratio which is primarily the home. I have a few credit card that hold a very low balance to credit limit. I have heard that I can claim my mothers contributions as income to help my debt/credit ratio. Since the bank does not look at the fact that there are two head of household here that are both claiming 50/50 ownership and payments. Please provide me with any information that could potentially help both of us reduce this ratio to obtain credit for an auto loan.

Asked 02/01/2008 12:19 pm CT (San Diego, CA)

We refinanced in Jan 07. The previous loan was an asjustable rate with several payment options. For most of CY06 we paid the minimum, thereby racking up a bunch of deferred interest (i.e. negative amortization). When we refinanced in Jan 07, and paid of the outstanding balance of that previous loan, I believe we paid off all that deferred interest. We received a 1098 form this month from that previous bank for $12000. So, in addition to all the interest we paid in 2007 with our new mortgager, we can also deduct this $12K since we paid all of that interest in Jan 07 under our refinance - right?
