Home Equity Second Loans in Colorado

A home equity loan or line of credit may be the exact type of financing you need if you want to take some cash out and your first mortgage has an interest rate below 5%.

Term Explanation

The acronym "LTV" means the loan amount ÷ by the appraised value.
Example: 90 LTV means you can get a loan up to 90% of the property value if you qualify.
If your home is worth $1,000,000 and you have a $500,000 first loan at 4.00% you may qualify for a 2nd loan up to $400,000.
The first and new second combined loans would total $900,000.  $900,000 ÷ $1,000,000 = 90 LTV.
