What is a Second Mortgage?

A second mortgage is an additional mortgage placed on a property with a 'first mortgage'. Second mortgages also referred to as '2nd mortgages', are considered somewhat riskier than first mortgages since if the property goes into default, the first mortgage holder must be paid first. Due to this increased risk, the interest rates for second mortgages are typically higher than those for first mortgages.

If you own at least 20% of the equity in your home, you will likely be approved for a second mortgage. A second mortgage is ideal when you need money to renovate your home or even make cash available for your business.
