Help the community by answering this question:


Refinancing depends upon your perceived ability to pay off the new loan and the value of the property compared to the new loan.

A recourse loan might have a lower interest rate if you have other assets the seller could seize if you don't make your loan payments. It doesn't really change whether it can be paid off and a new loan obtained.

An existing loan may have fees charged if you pay it off early.

If you have sufficient credit and income, you can refinance any loan.

Unfortunately, the lender that owns the loan is not telling me that. They are using to fact that it is a recourse loan to say they won't do a modification or a refinance. Can I go to someone else, unfortunately the home is underwater.
