Did you know as a homeowner if you have been in your house for over ten years the odds are your home equity has grown significantly.
Hi, I’m Tanja Odzak, eXp Realty, and I help people sell and buy homes here in the East Bay.
Home equity builds over time as home values grow and you pay down your mortgage. And since home prices have not drastically reduced over the last few years, you most likely have gained a good amount of equity in your home. According to Equity Insights Report, the average homeowner has more than $274,000 in equity right now. With this much equity, you can put your equity to good use to reach your goals.
Buy a Home that Fits Your Needs As a seller, downsizing might be an option you have been thinking about or perhaps you need a bigger space. Either way, you can put your equity towards a downpayment.
Payoff Higher Bills. As a seller, you may feel you cannot afford to move due to your debt. But did you know that using your equity to pay off some larger debts such as a car can help you offset a higher mortgage rate
Reinvesting in your Current Home Making renovations on your current home if you are not ready to move is a great option and can be a long term benefit to your home value when you are ready to sell.
The bottom line, your equity can be a game changer in your life and goals.
