Hi Bphensel,

Welcome to Mortgagefit discussion board.

The maximum Fannie Mae loan limit for second mortgages this year is at $322,650 and it is $483,975 for Alaska, Guam, Hawaii and U.S. Virgin Islands.

But let me also tell you that the sum of original loan amounts for the 1st & 2nd mortgage cannot be more than the maximum loan limit fixed for 1st mortgage by Fannie Mae.

Do let me know if you have any other questions.

welcome steven.

so you want to have home equity loan... right. your credit is medium and also you are self employed. so the rate of interest is going to higher comparatively. by the way you can request for no-obligation free mortgage quote to the community lenders. you just need to give minimum details.

hope it helps. let me know if you have any further queries.

I just moved into a home and would like to finish my basement and consolidate bills. Is there a way that I could get another loan on my home? My credit is good but I'm not sure what is available for people that just moved in and want to finish their house off. Does anyone have any suggestions? Places I could visit?? Thanks for your help

Hi kuddle!

If you want to consolidate your credit card debts, then you can either look for a debt consolidation or a debt settlement. In debt settlement, your outstanding balance will be reduced by 40%-60%. In case of debt consolidation, the interest rates are reduced. As far as finishing the basement is concerned, you should check out with the lenders whether you can get a home improvement loan or not.

I'm in a situation where I recently bought a house for $280.000 and because of a bad credit history we were asked to put down $72 000. I'm having dificulty getting all the money, so I was wondering if I could apply for a secon mortgage to cover the cost of downpayment. It's our first time buying a house, and I don't know much about it.

Hi cupovic_kristina,

I do not think taking a second mortgage will be a good option. You may try to go for a private mortgage insurance if you are unable to pay the down-payment required by the lender.
