Possible HELOC

Probably a dumb question but what the heck. I currently have 2 mortgages on my home. The second is a lien from the SBA. I have read that you can offer them a Offer in Compromise (OIC). So a thought was if I could take out a HELOC as a 3rd mortgage. Offer an OIC to them and use the HELOC to pay them off. Home values are rising and I may have just enough equity. Am I off my rocker is this a possibility? Or any other suggestions?

I'm not sure of any lenders that will take a third position on a home. You might have to look more towards a cash out refinance or another HELOC that can possibly pay off your existing one. I personally don't offer HELOC's and am unsure if that's even an option.

I'm guessing the terms you have on your first mortgage are great?
