Have 2 Home Equity Loans and want to Refinance

[ Edited ]

I have 2 Equity Loans and a main mortgage (3 total).   I'm trying to consolidate them all under one 15 yr fixed.  Is that possible?  In the past, I had some problems with mortgage companies to get them to do that. But that was back in the mid 2000's. 

 

Would this be possible now?

 

Thank you!!

credit Karma 674 credit sesame: 663
B/K discharged 2/2006......closed 8/2012

May your limits be high and your balances low!

What is the combined balance of your 3 loans and what is the estimated value of your home?  Were those home equity loans purchase money loans or were they taken out sometime after you bought?  If the home equity loans were not used to purchase your home, then a consolidationloan would probably be classified as a cash-out refinance and additional equity requirements may apply.

Around 260k. I got the loans after I got the original mortgage.  The est value is 305 k.  Would this work under your scenario?

The issue might be your equity.  If the property appraises for $305K, then 80% LTV would be $244K.  So this might be a problem, unless you could pay down $16K of debt, or find a lender willing to write a second for the $16K, or go below 80% LTV.
