Let me list the important facts to know to give you assistance:1) What is the approximate value of the home and 2) how much is the line of credit for. And most importantly3) how is your credit and 4) are you employed or have a steady monthly income?

Yes, you have to meet the Debt to Income ratio of the investor to qualify, typically up to 50% of your gross income. If you have any consumer debt that is contributing to your high DTI, you can get a cash-out refi up to 80% Loan to Value. In your case, up to $268,000 and use the excess to pay off your consumer debt. If your DTI is still too high, you either need to earn more income or come up with a game plan to pay down your debt until you qualify for a mortgage. And yes, each time the FED raises their rate, your HELOC will increase accordingly.

You may want to consider paying off the HELOC by taking out a first mortgage for 15 years. Rates are still low and you'd be on a fixed payback schedule. I would call a local mortgage professional to check out your options.
