So long as the 1st & 2nd don't exceed about 90% of the home's value ---and you have good credit--- you should have a variety of new mortgage options. You could re-finance both mortgages into one conventional mortgage, or an FHA mortgage. You may also consider adjustable-rate mortgages, and mortgages with a variety of terms, from ten years to 40 years. Right now, rates for a 15-year loan are about 2.60%, the lowest on record. The rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is around 3.50%. Don't delay, these rates won't be around forever, and if you miss these rates you'll regret it!

I've been getting a lot of questions about this here in the Philadelphia region. So I took it upon myself to write a piece about taking the proper steps on consolidating two mortgages into one. The biggest part of consolidating your mortgages is meeting the criteria of qualification before attempt to apply. If you want, you can read more about this on my blog. I've listed my site in the web reference. Hope to hear from you if you have any other questions.

It depends on your value and if you can do a conventional, FHA or VA loan.

Everyone's needs are different.
