How borrowing on home equity works
When you have equity in your home, you’re able to borrow money secured against your home equity. One big advantage is that often, interest rates on loans secured against home equity can be much lower than other types of loans.
Not all financial institutions offer home equity financing options. Ask your financial institution which financing options they offer. Companies like Prudent Mortgage Corp regularly work with clients to assist in setting up home equity loans.
Once you’ve gone through an approval process, if you’re approved you can borrow against your home equity quickly. Your lender may deposit the full amount you borrow in your bank account at once.
A second mortgage is a second loan that you take on your home. You can borrow up to 80% of the appraised value of your home, minus the balance on your first mortgage. The equity amount may vary depending on the lender. Prudent Mortgage Corp requires a lower percentage; often as low as 50% equity.
The loan is secured against your home equity. It’s important to note what your payments will be for both your first and second mortgage to ensure you aren’t stretching your budget too far.
If you can’t make your payments and your loan goes into default, you may lose your home. Prudent Mortgage Corp always carefully reviews your total finance situation to guide you into decisions that will still work for your goals and budget.
