What is a Second Mortgage
A second mortgage is a loan that is secured by a house or property. A second mortgage is placed behind a first mortgage in terms of debt priority. Getting a second mortgage is easy if you have adequate equity in your Hamilton home. Second mortgages can be used for consolidating debt, home renovations, business investments, and college tuition payments for your kids or other unforeseen costs.
Most people require a second mortgage to refinance their existing mortgage. When a property is sold, a second mortgage falls next in line to the first mortgage in the order of payments. If the money received from the sale of the property is not enough to cover the second mortgage, then the lender may lose a small or a huge part of their investment.
Bad Credit Second Mortgage
A second mortgage is a loan based on the equity in the property. It is not based on your credit rating. Therefore many homeowners can still get a second mortgage even with a bad credit rating. Private lenders consider the loan to property value ratio to be the most important criteria when determining your eligibility for a mortgage. The maximum loan to property value ratio for a bad credit second mortgage is 85%.
Hamilton Private Mortgage Lenders
Hamilton second mortgage lenders are private individuals that invest in mortgages and loans. They mostly invest in the local geographic areas where they live. Private lenders will invest an amount between $20,000.00 and $200,000.00 in a property. They mainly invest in first, second and third mortgages. If you have been turned down for a loan or mortgage by any of the banks lately then private second mortgage lenders are an excellent alternative .
Improvements to your Property
Lenders will do a home inspection prior to the final approval of the loan. They look for any kind of substantial defects that could affect the value of the property such as a roof that’s leaking or broken windows. Every homeowner should make sure to clean up their property inside and outside. It is recommended to have a fresh coat of paint on the walls as it will only reflect to show that the house is properly maintained. In case if the money required is to be used to repair or renovate the home, then show the private lender what work is to be done.
Second Mortgage Appraisal
Most lenders require an appraisal of the property before funding the mortgage. Appraisals are done by Certified Registered Appraisers, the average cost for an appraisal is about $350.00.
