Second Mortgage Rates  & Typical Terms | 2nd Mortgage Rates Avg

What are the typical terms of a traditional second mortgage?

A traditional second mortgage has a fixed rate of interest with equal monthly payments applied over the life of the loan. A second mortgage is one type of a home equity loan with the main difference from a HELOC being that it has a fixed mortgage rate. The loan is a one-time lump sum. The rate offered takes into account any points and other lender fees. The rate used on this second mortgage is determined by a borrower's equity in their home and credit score and is usually a few percentage points higher than rates on first mortgages. The typical loan term usually ranges between 10 to 15 years. On a fixed second mortgage each monthly payment includes interest and reduces the principal balance.
