If you are searching for a loan to cover the current mortgage owed, you may want to consider a few options before you settle on any one option. The bank lenders will often repossess or foreclose contracts if the borrower cannot pay for the mortgage loan. Thus, if you are searching for equity loans to refinance your home, you may want to consider selling your home to make profit and then purchasing a foreclosed home.

This is often wiser than taking out a second loan, since the foreclosed homes are often sold at a fraction of the market price. Otherwise, if you are searching for a equity loan, you may want to consider many details before applying for the loan.

For instance, if you are applying for equity loans, the lender will factor the amount of income generated in the home and multiply it by 3 for a single borrower. However, if you are married or applying Jointly for an equity loan, then the lender will factor in the repayments based on the first applicants salary times 3 the greater amount and the joint salary times one times the second salary, and then estimated 2 ½ of the combined salary.

In other words, the lender will combine both payments, rolling it into one monthly installment and the estimated amount is what you will repay. Since you are taking out an equity loan, then the lender will consider the equity of your home when subtracting the current balance owed on the property.

Last, we can look at an example to help you appreciate loan amounts:

Joint: Buyer One $30, 000 per year

Buyer Two: $20,000 per year

Equity vs. Balance vs. Loan:

We have in mathematical calculations: 30,000 x 3 + 20,000 = 110,000. Therefore, the borrower could take out an equity loan up to $110, 000, but this is not included the cuts on the equity vs. the amount owed.
