Why Vancouver Homeowners Are Considering Second Mortgages

March 19, 2018 | Published by

If you are a homeowner in Vancouver, it is very likely that you have seen an increase in the value of your property. Because of this increase in home values, many people have built equity (which is the market value of your home relative to any loan balances). Our real estate notary public knows that as a result of this, many Vancouver homeowners are choosing to tap into that equity they have built by getting second mortgages.

There are two types of second mortgages, lump sum and line of credit.

Lump Sum

A lump sum is the more typical second mortgage, whereby your lender will loan you an agreed upon “lump sum” of money that is provided to you immediately, to be used for whatever purpose you want. You will repay this lump sum over a predetermined amount of time, often with a fixed, predetermined monthly payment.

Line Of Credit

A line of credit acts more as a pool of money that you can draw from, if and when you choose to draw from it. The maximum amount of your line of credit is agreed upon between you and your lender, and you can continue drawing from that pool until that maximum amount is reached. You can also pay into your line of credit lowering your balance, then draw from it again as the need arises.
