TIPS ON BUILDING EQUITY
The difference between how much your home is worth and what you

Building equity on your own:
There are two ways you can create/increase the equity worth
of your home. Paying your mortgage regularly, on time every month
will help decrease the amount you owe, and increase the value of
your home. Paying more than the required monthly premium will help
expedite the equity increase.
Another means for building home equity is by making
improvements and add-on. For example, using the same numbers as
above, lets say you home is worth $300,000, and your mortgage is
$215,000. You have recently added a pool to your home that helps
increase the value of your home by $10,000, making your home worth
$310,000. Instead of $85,000 in equity, you know have $95,000.
Fair market value
and equity worth:
Over time , the market value of your home is going to increase,
resulting in you having more equity. For example, lets say you
purchased your home in 2000 for $200,000. A recent appraisal values
your home at $300,000. This means you have $100,000 in disposable
