Interest rates are locked in over the life of the loan for most Second Mortgages. Homeowners don’t have to worry about unexpected rises in their mortgage monthly payments. If you don’t know for sure how much money you will need over a period of time, a HELOC allows the borrower to take advances as they need. As you pay it back, it frees up more credit.
A borrower will typically enjoy lower monthly payments since the period of the Second Mortgage is usually longer, such as 15 years. Borrowers typically have lower monthly payments versus a Second Mortgage.
Since a Second Mortgage loan is a one-time, lump sum, some homeowners may find it easier to avoid additional debt versus a HELOC where you can continuously draw down money from the loan. Borrowers have the flexibility of choosing adjustable or fixed-rate HELOC options.

You prefer fixed monthly payments that won’t change. A lower interest rate is more important than the possibility of an increase in your monthly mortgage payment.
A longer loan term is necessary. It is uncertain how much money you will need to borrow and when.

Since Second Mortgage loans are fixed rate loans, if interest rates fall, the borrower will end up paying more in interest versus a HELOC which usually uses a variable rate that adjusts downward. When choosing a variable rate option, a borrower will not have the security of locked in payments. As interest rates change, so will the monthly payment.
Since the life of the loan is longer, for example 15 years, you end up paying more in interest. A HELOC has a shorter loan length which will require faster payment.
You only receive money one time, so if additional costs arise, the borrower would need to apply for a new loan or consider refinancing. Borrowers will have the freedom of only borrowing however much they need and only paying back that amount.
