It looks like we are going to need a new roof soon, What is the best way of procuring a loan if we owe $20,000 more on our home than its estimated worth?

You won't be able to obtain a mortgage for those funds, given new lending restrictions. A roofer may have some funding sources who could provide financing (whether secured by the home or not), but don't expect the interest rate to be low, given your lack of equity. You could also inquire with a credit union for a personal loan, provided you meet their lending guidelines. | 09.08.15 @ 19:50
