Ways to use the equity in your home

Posted on January 31, 2018 by Circle Mortgage Team


Once you’re a homeowner, the payoff can be great. When you make a mortgage payment each month, you build equity in a place of your own. As the equity in your home grows, your financial flexibility also increases. Think of it as an extra source of financing for when the unexpected happens.
An added benefit of borrowing money against the equity in your home, is it usually comes with a lower interest rate than other forms of credit, such as consumer loans, lines of credit and credit cards.
Here are some ways you can use the equity in your home:

  • Pay off other debts with higher interest rates (like credit card debt)
  • Renovate or repair your home – build a new room or put in a swimming pool
  • For important life events – a wedding, dream vacation or university tuition
  • Purchase a second home or vacation property
  • Emergencies – like a serious illness
