Using equity to purchase second house?

We have paid down the equity in our current home well below what the house is worth. Can we use the equity as a down payment for an additional property? by tomsomm906 from Albion, Iowa. Aug 24th 2015 Reply

You will need to do a cash out refinance on the current property but as long as you qualify for the debts. Yes you should be able to take that cash and use of a down payment.

Yes.. you would need to pull the equity out either by doing a HELOC or a 2nd mortgage against the same property, and so long as you have enough income to satisfy all the new mortgage debt, you should be ok..

The best way is to do a conventional cash out loan to get the cash to buy the 2nd home, plus you secure the lowest rate on your primary house with the most benefit financially. I would be happy to assist you as I am a Calif based lender with over 23 years in the industry.
