Recent statistics have shown that credit card debt reached a two-year peak at the end of the last year, and that the average credit card debt across Canada was roughly $3,700, up over 3% from the year before. Although they are a luxury and a great backup plan in case of emergency, many Canadians find themselves building significant debt from credit cards and then having difficulty paying it back.

Whether you are just making minimum payments, trying to juggle multiple cards to pay one off, or just in need of some help to clean up your current debt situations, if you are a homeowner, there is a solution: a second mortgage.

Second mortgages for debt consolidation

Perhaps the most common reason that people seek out Tribecca Finance for second mortgages is to help consolidate debt. By getting one, you are essentially borrowing money based off of the equity you’ve built up in your home. When you pay your mortgage payments, you build equity in your home and with the increase in house prices you may be pleasantly surprised with how much equity you now have in your home.

Why consolidate debt?

Consolidating debts is recommended to clients who are juggling multiple debts and struggling to keep up with all of the payments, due dates, interest rates, and terms. By getting the right loan, you can lower the interest rate and now have only one lower monthly payment to make.
