If you are in Brigantine, please feel free to stop by our office at 3620 Atlantic-Brigantine Blvd and speak with our loan officer Mike Loglisci from Trident Mortgage or call Mike at 609-338-9001. Depending on your overall financial situation, you may find that there are other options to consider as well. If it is to be a true 2nd home and you don't mind paying monthly mortgage insurance, you can finance up to 90% of the sale price and get a seller assist to cover closing expenses.

A strategy that is used by many individuals looking to buy a second home is just what you have stated, take equity out of your primary home. Of course, the amount of equity available is based on what is currently owed vs. the appraised value.
Most likely you would not be able to draw out all of the equity, lenders would want you to maintain a certain % of equity in the primary residence. This amount will depend on whether you opt for a home refinance or a Home Equity line of credit.

Start by speaking with a lender. Depending on your finances, equity and income there may be various options for you, but too much information is necessary to advise you here.
