Use Your Equity

Built up equity in your home? Take advantage.

Is this for me?

You are a homeowner and have equity in your home.

What is it for?

To take out some of your equity as a downpayment in an investment property, or to pay for school, renovations, debt payouts, or other expenses.

Put Your Home Equity To Good Use

Over time, as you pay down your mortgage and your home appreciates in value, equity is accumulated in your property. At the start, maybe you had a mortgage that put you at an 80% loan-to-value ratio, but after 5 years it drops to 60%. Now you have 20% more cash that you can pull out of your property to use for another purpose.

How A Mortgage Equity Takeout Works

An equity takeout mortgage or home equity loan is exactly what it sounds like: a mortgage loan used to “take out” equity in your property. Maybe you want to use the money for a home renovation, a large debt payout, or a down payment on an investment property or vacation home. If you have enough home equity, securing the right mortgage is the easy part.

Different Types

An equity home loan might involve a fixed amount of money borrowed at a fixed rate. Or, it can be a fixed sum with a variable rate. Depending on your situation, you may decide that an open line of credit is the best course of action. Shared equity mortgages vary in the ways in which they are organized, so first evaluate your needs and then work a mortgage broker who can help you determine the best solution.
