My son has a first mortgage with a balance of $89,500 with 6.5% interest rate.

He also has a second mortgage with an interest only loan in the amount of $22,500.  His current monthly payments for both are over $700.  I am wondering if he can combine the loans into one loan and save money on his monthly note.  His property value is $100,000 and he would need $112,000 to address both his current first and second mortgage loans.  He is employed and earns approximately $40 K per year.

Thanks for the response.  So in his case the most he could borrow would be $105,000 based on a property value of $100,000?  That would mean he would have to come up with $7,000 to pay down one of the two existing loans.  Is my thinking correct there?

He has no equity in the house its over 100% financing. I'm afraid for now he will have to wait.
