Why a second mortgage with ASCEND MIC?

Alternative mortgage financingOne of the great attractions of a second mortgage is that it serves as a source of alternative financing — whether it’s to consolidate debt, obtain emergency funds or simply relieve other various financial stresses. If it’s quick and readily-available borrowing that you need, a second mortgage might just be the answer.

If you’re unfamiliar with what a second mortgage is, it’s basically what the name implies: You use your property to secure another loan. Except, with a second mortgage, the lender (such as ASCEND MIC) would get second claim on the property in the even of a default.

In essence, this means we, the lender, take some added risk when providing you with a residential second mortgage, or even a commercial second mortgage. That’s why second mortgages usually come with higher interest rates than first mortgages, and also why second mortgages also might come attached with stricter lender requirements.

The ASCEND MIC difference

But that’s where the ASCEND MIC difference comes into effect. As a second-mortgage provider, we use our extensive experience in the mortgages industry to not only offer very competitive and relatively low interest rates, but very favourable conditions, too.
