First off, let’s start by discussing what “equity” is. Equity is like your home “working” for you while you sleep. It is the difference between the value of your home, and the balance left owing on your mortgage. Example; your home is worth $250,000 and your mortgage owing is at $150,000. You have $100,000 worth in equity in your home. Herein lies the power in ownership. As time goes by, typically the value in your home will go up. This is not a rule written in stone, however over time it should work to your benefit. Ownership x Time = Equity Gains. Whether or not you decide to do anything with your equity is up to you.
it was time to get a mortgage we really did not
know where to start.
The choices were nearly endless. Did we want to go
with a variable rate or a fixed rate? Did we want to
go short term or would locking in for a longer term
be better? How would we know that we were securing
the best available interest rate?

As a member in any local community, you are part of a “consumers” world. As a consumer of products, you are likely the owner of a credit card or two. Perhaps you have a car loan, or have a line of credit?
Whatever the case, you are faced with differing interest rates with every corner you turn. Equity in your home can turn these high interest rates into one low monthly payment. How? Typically, credit cards have anywhere from 9% - 22% interest attached to a balance that you carry. Here’s something to think about – mortgage rates far exceed the cost benefit when you place those debts within your mortgage. You can pay those high interest rate loans off with your equity!
