Through all his years in real estate Joe has just about seen it all, what works and what doesn’t work. The truth is the more equity you have in your home the more flexibility you have over all. Depending on what you use the money for and what the loan to value amount is, accessing equity from your home can really help or really hurt. Today Joe shares his 8 practical reasons for accessing equity from your home. Specific topics include:

  • Paying off second lien
  • Remodeling or adding on
  • Pulling equity from one home to remodel a secondary property
  • Paying down the mortgage on a secondary property
  • Down payment for another purchase
  • Pay down or pay off non tax deductable debt
  • Use equity to start or subsidize your business
  • Leveraging vs. accessing for another transaction
