Buying Second Home
Are you considering buying a second home as an investment property, or to use as a vacation home? If you have plenty of equity in your first home, and your finances are in order, buying a second home can be a wise move – but it may be a little trickier than it was buying your first home!
Lending Requirements for a Second Home
Surprisingly, lenders will be more cautious about approving a mortgage for a second home than they were for your first home – even if you’ve been making your payments on time for years.
You may also be surprised to learn that if your second home is an investment property – for rental income, or to flip and resell – it may be harder to get a loan. Lenders are more open to financing a vacation property than an investment property.
