Question by michael o: if i take out a home equity loan now will this loan affect me if i want to refinance my mortgage.?
I have 24 years left on 30 year mortgage. I am thinking about a home equity loan at a favorable rate, rather than roll in to refinance consolidation. If rates are favorable later this year i may like to refinance 1st mortgage at 15 years. Will home equity loan affect my refinancing even if i am not looking for any cash out.

Right now rates are LOW, I would just refi instead of the HELOC that might cost you 7% on up. Why pay for 2 transactions.
