In 2005, I took out a home equity loan with Bank One (now Chase Bank). They over-inflated the appraisal on my home and I ultimately ended up owing more than the property is worth. I had a 2-year ARM on my first mortgage and when that expired, I was unable to refinance thanks to Chase Bank. I'm in foreclosure and bankruptcy thanks to this company. Beware of taking out any kind of mortgage loan with them. In order to close the deal, they will inflate the appraised value of your home and you could end up like me.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

3 possibilities

AUTHOR: Jay - (U.S.A.)

There are 3 possibilities:

They inflated the value, and you have a legitimate case against them. Go to your state agency that handles that immediately.

The second is that property values dropped.

The 3rd: ARMs are almost always a bad deal. My guess is you bit off more than you could chew with the house, i.e., it was too expensive but not with the low interest rate the ARM had. Depending on the financing, you could have had a lot of fees rolled in to the loan so that the value was not inflated, but 2 years paying interest is not going to touch principal and the higher amount reflects the rolled in expenses of the loan.

Check the paperwork and find out exactly what is going on. Get your own appraisal and compare it to what Chase gave you.
