About Home Equity Loans
A home equity loan, otherwise known as a caveat mortgage, or second mortgage, is an amount borrowed against the equity in your mortgage. Your Home Equity is derived from the market value of your property compared to what is owed on the property. (market value less the balance of your mortgage)
You can use this equity on your mortgage to renovate your existing property, buy an investment property or any other lifestyle goals. Many people use their home equity to add value to their property through renovations or other assets such as solar power. You can also use it to purchase other assets such as a motorhome.
