    If you have no equity in your home and you are unable to come up with 20% down for a new house, then the only thing you can do is stay put and continue paying your mortgage payments on a timely basis. First thing you do is look at your loan documents to find out how much your interest rate can move once it becomes variable. There is always a cap on how much your lender can raise the interest rate. Find out what the cap is — can the rate go up by 1% a year or 5% a year?. Remember that interest rates can go DOWN as well as go up although in this market that would probably be rare. Once you know how much the interest rate can move, you can figure out the maximum of how much your monthly payment will be. Then you need to start saving your pennies so that if your monthly payment does go up a lot you will be prepared.

    It sucks, I know, but that’s the way it is.

    Good luck!
