Owner Occupied Hard Money 2nd Mortgage
Let’s say you own a home (and a mortgage) but you need to borrow money. You may need to borrow money to start a business or to do home repairs. Where will you get the money from? Since you are borrowing money, it means that you have no extra money lying around – but, you do have a house. And that’s what a second mortgage is: it’s the ability to borrow money using your house as collateral. This is also called a Home Equity Loan.
Let’s say your home is worth $300,000 and your mortgage is $225,000. A second mortgage can be as high as $75,000. That’s a significant sum of money! But you have to be careful: if you don’t pay back your loans, the bank or lender will foreclose on your home and you will lose your house. Losing your house due to non-payment is severe. As such, we recommend that you only take out a second mortgage if there’s a good reason to do so. Two typical reasons why a second mortgage makes sense are:
- INCREASE NET VALUE: The money from the second mortgage is used to earn more money. For example, you use the money to open or expand a business. Once the business is up and running, the extra income from the business can be used to pay back the loans.
- AVOID PMI: In some cases, it makes sense to take out a 2nd mortgage and use the money as a downpayment on your home purchase. A downpayment of 20% will allow you to avoid PMI (private mortgage insurance) payments.
- FUN MONEY: It is not recommended to take out a second mortgage and use the money to go on vacation or do something fun. You should also avoid taking out a second mortgage to pay for daily expenditures. Regardless of why you want the money, you need to always think of how you intend to pay back the loans.
