You can obtain a small mortgage on the free&clear house and paid down the loan on the first house.
for most mortgage loans, if the loan-to-value ratio is less than 80%, you can avoid paying the mortgage insurance.
run the numbers, make sure you can manage the new payments and it’s worth your time to do it.
