The Golden Ticket of Homeownership as a Buyer

What is the golden ticket of homeownership? Hi, I am Krista Mashore with eXp Realty and The Mashore Group. As a homeowner that has been in their home for a number of years, you may have more equity built up that you are aware of. Your equity can be your golden ticket to your next move. So, what is equity? This is when over the years you gain equity as you pay down your home loan and home values rise. In fact, your equity can grow faster than you realize. Most homeowners in the United States are sitting on a tremendous amount due to having their mortgage completely paid off or have at least 50% in equity. Infact, according to Corelogic the average homeowner with a mortgage has $298,000 built up in equity. So, what can you do with this much equity? For starters, if you are planning a move, once you sell you can use it for a larger down payment on your next home so you are borrowing less from the bank. In some instances you may have enough built up to pay all cash on your next purchase. Having equity in your home can make your move possible when affordability is tight. Also, the more equity that you have you can use that equity to buy down your interest rate and have a much more affordable payment. So there are plenty of options that you may not be aware of. Please reach out to my team and I so we can give a home valuation on your property’s value. This way you can see how much equity you may have and also the current market stats in your area.
