Take advantage of your equity to finance your next property or pay off debt
A second mortgage is a type of loan that is secured by a home or other property that already has a first mortgage. Second mortgages are sometimes referred to as "home equity loans" because they allow homeowners to borrow against the equity in their home.
Here's how a second mortgage works:
Qualification: To qualify for a second mortgage, you must have equity in your home and meet certain credit and income requirements.
Loan Amount: The loan amount for a second mortgage is based on the equity in your home, which is the difference between the current market value of the home and the outstanding balance on your first mortgage.
Interest Rate: Second mortgages typically have higher interest rates than first mortgages because they are considered a higher risk to lenders.
Payment Terms: Second mortgages are typically paid back over a fixed term, usually 10 to 30 years, with regular monthly payments.
Uses: Second mortgages can be used for a variety of purposes, such as home improvements, debt consolidation, or to pay for education expenses.
Risk: Second mortgages are riskier than first mortgages because they are secondary to the first mortgage in terms of repayment priority. If you default on your second mortgage, the lender of the first mortgage has the first right to foreclose on the property.
In summary, a second mortgage is a type of loan that is secured by a property that already has a first mortgage. Second mortgages allow homeowners to borrow against the equity in their home for various purposes. If you're considering a second mortgage, it's important to work with a Loan Officer from Parada Mortgage and carefully consider the risks and benefits before making a decision.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a type of loan that allows homeowners to borrow money using the equity they have built up in their homes as collateral.
Here's how it works: When you make mortgage payments, you build equity in your home, which is the difference between the home's current market value and the outstanding balance of your mortgage. With a HELOC, you can borrow against that equity, up to a certain amount, and use the funds for any purpose you choose, such as home renovations, education expenses, or debt consolidation.
HELOCs typically have a variable interest rate that fluctuates based on market conditions and are often structured as a revolving line of credit, similar to a credit card. This means that you can borrow and repay funds as needed, up to your approved credit limit, and only pay interest on the amount you borrow.
However, it's important to note that because a HELOC is secured by your home, failure to repay the loan can result in foreclosure. Additionally, as with any loan, there are fees and costs associated with a HELOC, including application fees, appraisal fees, and closing costs.
Before applying for a HELOC, it's important to carefully consider your financial situation and your ability to repay the loan. You should contact a loan officer from Parada Mortgage to get the best terms and rates, and compare offers from several lenders to find the option that's best for you.
