I got an interesting situation maybe you can help me on.&nbsp; Bought a home (primary) for $940K&nbsp; in 2007 that is now worth probably $840K.&nbsp; I have two loans. A $752K Interest Only at 6.75% and a $92K piggyback at 8.25%.&nbsp; The IO resets in 2017 and the piggyback balloons in 2022.&nbsp; I'd love to take advantage of low rates and get into a normal fixed loan but have hit a wall.&nbsp; Talked to both lenders and several brokers and get the same story (i.e: NO). Basically my choices are to continue to pay interest-only until I move which will have to be before 2017, stop paying (won't do this as I signed a contract which I take seriously) or just send in the keys when I'm done with it (don't like this choice either). If I was to sell today I'd take a $50+K hit to pay the broker's fees and closing costs which seems like a bad idea and waste of money. If I wait it may never come back up so I'm still paying a Realtor out of pocket to get rid of it (at that point doesn't it make sense to just walk away even though my credit get's hit?)&nbsp; I want to do the right thing but obviously the gov't isn't about helping me (I get it, I don't REALLY need their help).&nbsp; Any suggestions on who to talk to? My end game is to get into a 30 yr fixed preferably at a lower payment and stay in the house for a long time...<br \><br \>4 replies Tue, 27 Apr 2010 17:28:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Jumbo-loan-with-a-piggyback-refi/347413/ 2010-04-27T17:28:00Z Mill Valley Home Sales http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Mill-Valley-Home-Sales/286291/ If you are thinking about purchasing in Mill Valley, Ca. here are some numbers to look at this week.
