Renovation Loan -- Not likely?

I apologize for cross posting this from another forum, but I think this is the correct discussion area.

I'm looking to do a major remodel on my home in Phoenix, in the vicinity of $500,000.  I'm underwater about $150,000 on my $1 million 100% mortgage from 2007, but my yearly income is in the vicinity of $400,000 gross.  Monthly mortgage payments are in the vicinity of $6500.  Credit score 720.  Given the current credit climate, am I out of luck in terms of securing a renovation or construction loan?  Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you need a knowledgeable lender!!! I can put you in touch with a great lender that will be able to answer all of your questions and get you looked after if it is at all possible.  They are in Phoenix as well, please just email me and I will get you their information ASAP!

BTW do not do business with "professionals" who violate the terms of zillow's policy. Do NOT take referals from people who violate zillow's rules.

If they do that out in the open...imagine what they'd do when you were not looking....

Thanks for the warning.  I'm just curious if this would be at all possible, based upon others' experiences.   I don't want to spend time trying to contact loan officers and then discovering that this is essentially futile.

I don't see how you could make the appraisal work. The loan would be way over allowed limits, also.

20 years lending experience, with construction and renovation loan emphasis.

Regroup.

In terms of getting a mortgage, not much you can do.

But, ...thinking out of the box; if you are willing to commit personal assets (stocks, bonds, ect..), you can get a secured personal loan.
