Second Mortgage Loan Benefits & Guidelines

The term “second mortgage” can be used to refer to home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs). All of these loans are taken out on a property that already has a first mortgage.

Home Equity Advantage Loan℠ for cash out

Equity is an asset, therefore it’s possible to use it as collateral and turn it into the money you need.

The Home Equity Advantage Loan℠ for cash out from AAFMAA Mortgage Services LLC (AMS) enables qualified homeowners to tap into their home equity.

If you have a low-interest rate on your first mortgage and need money for home improvements, debt consolidation, or other major expenditures or investments, you can get the money you need without having to refinance your first mortgage.

The Home Equity Advantage Loan (second mortgage) is not available in Minnesota, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas.
