    Home values have risen dramatically in the past several years, so chances are if you are a homeowner, then you’ve built up some considerable equity in your home. But what exactly does that mean for you, and how can you access that equity? One option is to get a second mortgage.

    What is a second mortgage?

    A second mortgage is simply a loan that is secured by the equity that you have in your home. It works very similarly to a first mortgage (the one that you used to purchase your home) – you must go through an approval process and once approved you receive the loan in a lump sum, and then pay it back with interest over the term of the mortgage.

    At the end of the second mortgage term, you will have the option to pay off the loan in full or to renew the second mortgage.

    Most lenders will allow you to borrow up to 80% of your home equity. So if your home is worth $900,000 and you still have $300,000 owing on your mortgage, you have $600,000 in home equity and would be able to borrow up to $480,000 with a second mortgage.

    Why Get A Second Mortgage?

    Although the interest on a second mortgage is a little higher than the interest on a first mortgage, it is still usually much cheaper than the interest on other types of loans. So if you need a large sum of cash, getting a second mortgage may be one of the best options available.

    Reasons that homeowners get second mortgages are varied however some common reasons are to finance large expenses like home improvements or a down payment on another property as well as debt consolidation.

    Using a second mortgage for debt consolidation is a great strategy for paying off higher interest consumer debt more quickly and more affordably. Consumer debt from credit cards, payday loans and other unsecured sources of credit often comes with a very high interest rate. By consolidating your debt with a second mortgage and reducing the amount of interest that you have to pay each month, you will be able to reduce your debt payments, pay off the principal faster, or even both!
