The flexibility of a 2nd mortgage gives you the option of receiving the loan in a lumped sum or as a line of credit from which you can draw funds as they are needed. This second option is most commonly known as a home equity line of credit and works much like a credit card with a limit as high as 85% of the value of the house. These credit lines differ from lump sum 2nd mortgages in that they are always adjustable rate mortgages. This means the interest rate on the loan will go up or down with the current interest rate levels.

A 2nd mortgage can be paid back over a single year or can be spaced over twenty years, depending on the borrower and the lenders preference. The shorter the payment period, the larger the monthly payment. The larger the loan, the more time will be needed to repay the loan. You should be careful to choose a realistic payment plan so you are not forced to borrow more money to cover the cost of the loan.
2nd Mortgages are popular because they make available large quantities of money with low interest rates, allowing a homeowner to make use of his or her house as collateral and to tap into valuable home equity. These loans are also available with fixed interest rates, giving borrowers the opportunity to lock in incredibly low rates.
