Two Top Ways to Use Your Home Equity to Remodel

By: America's Credit Union
March 7th, 2019

At its core, the concept behind home equity is a simple one.  It’s a term that describes the market value of the “unencumbered interest” in your home – meaning, the difference between the fair market or “appraised” value and the outstanding balance of any and all loans that you may still owe. Home equity is calculated by taking 80% of that value and subtracting the loan balances. So, if your home was worth $200,000 and you still owed $100,000: $200,000  x  80%  =  $160,000   -$100,000      $60,000             The equity on your home would be $60,000.            What a lot of people don’t realize (especially first time homeowners,) is that it’s definitely possible to remodel your home to help it look and feel precisely how you want it and improve the amount of equity you have at the exact same time. Below are two responsible home equity techniques that you’re definitely going to want to know more about.
