Confused In Need of Refinancing Advice
Ask Kate: Confused In Need of Refinancing Advice I am a forty eight year old female who owns her own home. I have a Home Equity Line Of Credit with a major mortgage lender. I was married for twenty five years and when I was married my husband set this all up with the mortgage person. I was just called in to sign the final papers.
Never thought I would get divorced but now that I am and I own the home I am worried about everything. I was left with $30,000.00 owed on the Home Equity Line Of Credit and no first mortgage.
I just happened to look over the paper work and see that it does have a time limit on it. Not to mention I am afraid of my mortgage company's future. It is I guess due in 2012.
It is 1 1/2 percent over prime and I was wondering what I should do. I have my savings and stocks which are greater than what I owe for now but worry about the economy today , tomorrow, week from now and a year from now. I can not sell my home right now in this market so I rent it out. I live in N.C. and go home to visit with my friends.
Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated . The value of my home is $299,000, located in Danville, VA.
