Did you know home equity can be a valuable resource when it’s used correctly? The equity in your property can be a valuable resource, as it may allow you to secure finance to achieve your investment goals. If it’s something you’ve been thinking about, here is some information that may be useful.

What is equity and how is it calculated?

Home equity is the current market value of your home minus the amount you still owe on your home loan. As an example, if your home is valued at $800,000 and you still owe $300,000 on it, you’ll have $500,000 of equity.

Many homeowners mistakenly think that they have to pay off their home loan before they can start investing in property. You might already have enough equity to use as a deposit for your next purchase. If you’ve owned your home for some time and you’ve made regular repayments to your principal loan, or the value of your property has increased because of a rising property market, it’s likely you will have built up equity in your property over time.

The equity in your existing home is your untapped wealth. By unlocking it, you wield one of the powerful tools to start building a solid investment property portfolio.
