How much equity do you have in your home?

February 25, 2016

92% of homeowners with a mortgage have regained equity

92% of homeowners with a mortgage now have equity in their property, according to CoreLogic’s recent equity report. 256,000 households regained that equity in the third quarter  of 2015. This results in an increase in wealth and confidence. Many homeowners  who sat tight, waiting for their value to rebound,  are now in a better position to consider moving up and on.

How much equity do you think you have?

A recent study by Fannie Mae found that only 37% of those surveyed though they had significant (20%+) equity in their properties. In actuality, 69% of them did.   Today’s incredibly low interest rates make thinking of a move very tempting and so many people may not realize the position they are in with their home equity.   Time to talk to an expert.

Time to move?
