Four ways to finance your cottage based on the net value of your property
Finance a down payment
You can use your home equity to make a down payment for a second mortgage on a cottage. Often, you can get better rates on a second mortgage.
If the net value of your property is high enough, you can remortgage your first home and use the money to buy a cottage. This solution is best for situations when the cottage you are buying is in an area not covered by lenders.
Partial financing with a home equity line of credit
You can use the net value of your property to get a home equity line of credit for a down payment on a cottage, then get a second mortgage for the balance.
Full financing with a home equity line of credit
If the net value of your property is high enough, you can use your equity to open a home equity line of credit to pay off your cottage, then pay back the line of credit according to the terms you negotiate. This gives you more flexibility for repayment than other options.
