Have you considered tapping into your home equity to send a child off to college, or remodel your home? A fixed- or adjustable-rate loan that is secured by your home equity is called a "home equity loan." You'll repay the loan over an agreed time period by making payments monthly, just like your original mortgage loan. The terms "home equity loan" and "second mortgage" are often used interchangeably.

Home Equity Loan Specifics

The process for a home equity loan is similar to getting your first mortgage loan. Some distinctions are though, that the rate of interest with a home equity loan is typically more (with tax deductible interest) with lower closing costs.

To qualify for a second mortgage, your credit has to be in good standing and you should be able to document your income. To determine your home's market value, your lending institution will require an appraisal of your home.
