Home equity is the difference between what your home is worth and how much you owe on your mortgage. When you borrow against this difference, it’s called a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit; both are commonly referred to as second mortgages. Your home equity grows in several ways:
- As you make payments on your mortgage
- As the value of your home increases
- When you make smart renovations that increase the value of your house
Many homeowners use their second mortgage to renovate their home, pay for their or their child’s education, or to consolidate debt. Some lenders will require a lender’s title insurance policy when you take out a second mortgage. Buyer’s Title can conduct a thorough title search for you and issue a title insurance policy.
