      If I own two homes, can I get a HELOC on both my primary and secondary residence?

          More than likely you can - however, your second home will be treated as an investment property - meaning that the LTVs will be much lower. So, let's say on your primary home - you get a loan or home equity line of credit up to 80% of the LTV. But, on the 2nd home - it will be more like up to 50% or 60%. Plus, all lenders will look at your personal debt to income ratio as well as your ability to make the monthly payments. Thus, just because you have equity in any home - if you cannot service the monthly payments - they will still deny.

          Contact a local bank or financial institution and just ask them questions regarding their LTVs on both primary and secondary homes - this should answer a few of your questions regarding if you qualify and for how much.
