Home Improvement Loan: Good or Bad Idea?
Buying a home helps people feel a little more secure about their financial future. As the years pass and the mortgage decreases, a homeowner will own more and more of their home. The more home that is owned, the more equity is available.
Home equity is how much of your property you actually own. Thus, your home equity is how much of your property's value you've paid off. It can be calculated by looking at the house's current market value and subtracting the remaining balances of your home loan(s). This is an asset that can be borrowed against or cashed in when the home is sold.
