Hello -

It's true that a bit more information is required to nail the numbers down. You have good timing - rates are as low as they have ever been. To make your income go even further, we offer 10% down with no pmi. We also try to do no points/no cllosing cost financing whenever possible. Contact me anytime.

Its tough to give you an accurate amount, because there are so many variables that go into determining the final value. I would be more than happy to talk to you. At no cost to you, I can give an accurate amount, after answering few questions.

about 41% of your income can go towards consumer debt (housing, credit cards, car payments and student loans) That would also include the mortgage on your current condo.

There are so many variables involved it would be best to talk to a loan officer. There is a gentleman I recommend in Burlington. Barry Thomas- American Foundation Mortgage Bank- 781- 272-4663. Barry will make sure you move forward with a full understanding of the process.

Sorry. Condo is valued at ~$150k, principal on my current 15-year mortgage is ~$100k. I'd like to refinance it to a 30 year to get the payments down so it'd be easier to break even or make a profit on renting. If I'd need to cash out a bit (like say 10k or 15k) then I'd do that too.

And no debt means no credit card, no car payments, no school loans, no alimony, no debt whatsoever...

Also what would your deposit be on yor purchase? You may need to have a lease lined up to rent the condo in order to be qualified for the new purchase. So many factors affect this question you really need to sit down with a qualified mortgage professional. If you would like some names you can call me at 508-277-2032

Your question isn't totally clear. Are you saying that your condo is worth $150K, that you have a loan for $100K, and that you'd like to do a (cash-out or rate/terms) refinance? If so, then did you also mean that you have no CREDIT CARD debt?
