Hey Marcus.. you can refinance just the first mortgage. The 2nd will have to "Re Subordinate" (paperwork handled by your mortgage guy), but it can absolutely be done.. .. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. 480-287-5714

Yes, if the 2nd mortgage holder will agree. They may or may not charge a fee to do this. Your lender that is refinancing the 1st want to ask them for a subordination package.

Hi Marcus, yes this is fairly common. Your mortgage professional will just need to re subordinate your 2nd. This means that it will put the 2nd in second position again behind your new first mortgage.

Hi--you absolutely can. However, it depends what your final combined loan to value would be. If you are interested, I would be happy to discuss with you further, Thank you

Yes, if the second will cooperate. Contact the second lender, with the new terms on the first, the appraisal value and proposed closing date.

Yes, as long as your 2nd mortgage lender will subordinate their position and agree to stay in 2nd. Your lender will submit a subordination agreement to them. Your lender will charge for the subordination request and you may or may not have to pay for depending on who you are using for your new loan. The process can take up to a month after it's submitted so you will need to plan for a small wait. Best wishes, Sean

The short answer is yes, as long as your 2nd mortgage holder is willing to stay in second position after the new loan you'll be taking on the home.

Yes you can, but ONLY if your 2nd mortgage lender agrees to remain in 2nd position.

As others are saying, sure you can - as long as the holder of the 2nd cooperates, and they usually do. It's a great time to move forward, rates have dipped from recent 2 year highs. William Acres at Velocity who answered previously always has knowledgable comments, suggest you give him a call for help. Good luck
