What is a second mortgage?
A Second Mortgage, commonly referred to as a home equity loan, allows you to use the equity in your home to secure a loan. Certified Federal Credit Union offers two varieties of home equity loans: Variable-Rate Lines of Credit and Fixed-Rate/Fixed-Term Loans.
Variable-Rate Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
For maximum flexibility and the lowest payment, a credit line tied to the equity in your home is a great option. You may borrow money as you need it, and monthly payments are based on 15-year repayment terms. As you pay down the balance, that equity is freed up for you to borrow again, quickly and easily.
Fixed-Rate/Fixed-Term Equity Loan
A fixed-rate home equity loan is a good option for members who need a set amount of money for a specific purpose. It allows you to borrow, in a lump sum, up to a specified percentage of the equity in your home. With this loan, you get a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan (we offer terms of 10 and 15 years). With low closing costs and fast turnaround time, we make the process easy.
