Asked 11/05/2009 05:16 am CT (Jacksonville, FL)

I am looking into a 3/1 ARM backed by the CMT index. The margin is 2% with a 5% cap on the life of the loan. Starting interest rate is 3.75. I was just wondering if this is a good deal or not and if refinancing is a good idea if you are only getting an interest rate about 1 point lower than the current one. Currently my interest rate is 6 1/8. Thanks

My husband and I have owned out home for 13 years. It is our primary residence. Last November, 2009 we refinanced consolidate our 1st and 2nd mortgages and to pay off credit card debt. Our credit was poor at the time and we received a 11.33% interest rate on the new loan. They told us that if we could keep on the mortgage payments and not incrue any new debt, they would refinance us Nov 2010. Since then they have closed all their branches and are no longer taking any new business which included refinancing their current clients. We currently owe $158K with a payment of $1,760 per month plus a 5% prepay penalty estamated value of the home is $166k. if we refinance or sell before November 2011. The currently mortgage company states that they have chosen not to participate in the Obamha Stimulas package. We have been playing the pay them late but just in time game for month and we can\\\'t keep it up any longer. On Sept 30,2009 we will hit our first 30 days past due. We have found a rental house to move into but what are our options for getting out of this home and the mortgage. How will the options affect our credit? is one worse than the other. What are the tax implimintations? Thanks, Cathi

I am in process of refinancing my 10-yr adj @ 6% (6yrs left) because my equity has dropped significantly but I still have more than 20% equity. My new rate will be 5.75% although I'm trying to get 5.5% (it's a twin). I have credit score average of 800. I'm wondering if I should wait to see if I can get 4.5% on refinancing that they are talking about with the stimulous money. I am not someone who would be defaulting -- just trying to ge into a 30-yr fixed. I'm concerned that if I refinance in 2009, I would not be able to apply for this if i becomes available to me. Any ideas? Thanks, Kip

I would like to know if it is worth refinancing the mortgage on my house. We cuurently owe about $265000 on a house worth around $700000.

First I must say that you do not have the city I live in on your list so I just picked one. Anyway here is my situation. I need to refinance my home to lower my payment, repair my roof and lower my interest rate and I have done everything that I have been asked to do. I have a manufactured home and land appraised at 75,000. My credit is good and I actually pass FHA inspection and have released the title to my home. The only problem I run into is there is no properties such as mine that have sold in the past two years. Now I do live in the smallest county in PA we only have 5300 people and sales are a little slower. There are a lot of manufactured homes being purchased as they are affordable for folks but no one is selling. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do. I am struggling to maintain my house payment the way it is and am afraid I will have to let it go back. The current lender will not consider refinancing the loan. Do you have any suggestions?

I have tried, unsuccessfully, to find someone to refinance my 2001 Homestead 16x80 mobile home. It is financed through Greentree with a variable interest rate (presently 14.625). Greentree will not refinance nor will they consider financing for anyone wanting to purchase this home. I tried to sell it but found that, due to the amount owed on it (roughly $27,000)it makes more sense to buy a new home than to buy this one. I have a good tenant living in it who wants to buy it herself but her credit is poor. I have a chapter 7 bankruptcy which was discharged in November 2005. My fico scores are right under 600. I am desperate to find someone to refinance this home on a fixed interest rate so that the payment will be more affordable and predictable. The current payment is $374.89 and she must also pay $150.00 lot rent. If the payment continues to rise, I will lose my tenant. No one seems willing to take a chance on refinancing for me although I have a good job I have been working for 6 years, with a decent salary (appx. $35,000/yr). I just got a promotion and will be moving in the next week or so to start my new job. I would love to get this mobile home refinanced (or financed for my tenant) before I go. Does anyone know of a mortgage company who would refinance for me?

We own a home on 18.25 acres. We are considering selling the 8.25 to our neighbors, keeping the house on 10. As our mortgage is for the house on the full 18.25, can we sell the 8.25? What interest does our mortgage company have in this? As long as our value stayed above what we owe could we hold off on refinancing? Or would a refi be required? If so, when - at the closing of the sale of the land? before we begin the subdivide? after we have closed? Do we have to disclose our intent to sell the acreage to the mortgage company? or just let them know afterwards? Thanks!

Asked 01/01/2008 05:43 am CT (colorado springs, CO)

my exhusband took out a 2nd on a home he was supposed to be refinancing without my authorization. We've been divorced for 8 years and he was supposed to have the house refinanced within 24 months of the divorce settlement. It's been 6 years now since he did that and because of the 2nd and him being in arrears and foreclosure proceedings on the 1st, he's not able to get me off the 1st. Hence, my credit has been damaged because of all of this, as well as my reputation, being that I work in the courthouse in which all of the Rule 120s are filed. Can I go after the bank because of this that loaned him the 2nd without my signature or authorization?

My home was purchased by a relative using my money but their credit. I make all of the payments, and we got the house as an interest only purchase. Two weeks after purchase, the market started declining and we have no equity. The problem now is that my house and my relatives, are near each other, so they consider it income property, although I can prove that I have made all of the payments. We are having problems refinancing it because of the lack of equity, and with the continuous increase I can't afford it any longer. My question is, can you advice me on how we can approach the mortgage company and convince them that it would be better for them to work with us on a lower fixed rate, then to risk the house going into foreclosure?
