It all depends on the rest of your finances, If you have enough cash you could sell your home and pay the difference. Assuming this is not the case and you want a bigger place you should talk to an attorney about doing a short sale if you want to keep your home consider a loan modification. Best of Luck,

No you can't do two mortgage rolled into one right away. It looks like you are saying you are upside down. Talk to a local realtor to get a true value of your house and talk to a mortgage lender to determine your course of action.

So your current house is worth 126k and you owe 178k?
