Your home equity is a valuable resource

Equity is the difference between the balance of your home loan and the market value of your home.
Accessing some of that equity could help you tick off items on your personal bucket list. Here's how it works.



Equity explained by our home loan expert

Refinancing is often a tactic used to free up the equity you have in your current home in order to fund purchases or lifestyle goals.
Our home loan expert explains the term 'home equity' and how it can be accessed, and outlines ways in which it may be used.
