There may come a time after you have obtained your first mortgage and purchased your home that you realize that you may need additional funds. Since you now own a home, you are an ideal candidate to borrow money against that home which is often called a second mortgage. Toronto residents may find that they need help to cover a variety of expenses that may come up later in life, foreseen and unforeseen. A perfect solution is a second mortgage, sometimes also referred to as a home equity loan.
When you borrow money on a second mortgage, the amount that you can typically borrow will be
based upon the approximate difference between the outstanding balance on your first mortgage and the home’s current market value. What this kind of loan does is actually to use your home’s equity in order to get you cash to pay for such things as school tuition, debt consolidation, home repairs, or other financial needs as you see fit. In the long term, this is a great way to tap into the equity in your home in order to meet your budget needs, while at the same time avoiding high interest, unsecured debt such as credit cards.
If you have decided to consider a second mortgage, there are a few things that you will absolutely
need to do. First, you will need to consider if obtaining a second mortgage is really worth borrowing against your home for. For example, if you are borrowing the money to help your child go to school and a majority of the money is paying for tuition, you will likely consider this worth the risk of borrowing against your home.
However, if you’re thinking about using the money to purchase a new car, when you already have
two that are in great condition, then you may want to reconsider taking out a 2nd mortgage. Toronto residents that do go through this process may find that it saves them a lot of time and hassle when it comes to the second mortgage decision process.
The next thing that you will need to do is to get your home appraised. When you work with a mortgage company like us here at OE Mortgage, we can help you through this particular step in the process. What the home appraisal will actually do is to nail down the approximate market value of the home. This value will be used in order to determine if you are (a) eligible for a second mortgage, and (b) what that amount will be if you are eligible for the second mortgage.
As soon as we have determined the value of your home and what kind of loan you might be looking at and if it will suit your needs, we can work with you to begin looking for a lender. We here at OE Mortgage will strive to ensure that you receive the best deals available when it comes to second mortgage lenders and resources.
