Using Your Home Equity to Your Advantage

Home Equity

So, you have got plenty of money and couldn’t use a few extra thousand for any reason—right? Chances are, that is not the case. If you are like most people, you could certainly benefit from additional funds. Refinancing your home for a “cash out” option could be the solution you need to help you solve those problems. If your home has equity, you can use it to your advantage. Consider these common ways that people just like you in Louisville, Kentucky can make their lives easier or better by refinancing.

  • Make Home Improvements – This is probably the number one reason people choose a home equity loan or do cash out refinance. Making improvements to your home will not only make life easier for you, but it adds value to the property too—so you are building further equity.
  • Pay Off Consumer Debt – Credit card bills are the bane of existence for many. Pay those off (and figure out a way not to run them up again) and you’ll make your life much easier!
  • Reduce Medical or Tuition Bills – The expense of old medical debt or college loans is the one thing that makes it difficult for many people to get by each month. What if you paid those off with one simple payment (from the proceeds of a cash out refinance) and you did not have to worry about those payments each month?

Undoubtedly, there are other occasions where cash out refinances would make sense too. However, these ideas can get you thinking in the right direction. Just remember, it may be possible to refinance and lower your payments instead too—which could be a better option for many. If you want to learn more about the process and see if it is a good fit for you, reach out to us at First Liberty Mortgage in Louisville, Kentucky. We look forward to working with you!
