How do I release equity from my home?

Addisons can assist you to utilise the equity in your home to fund renovations, build your property portfolio or even enhance your lifestyle.

Equity simply refers to the difference between what your home is worth and how much you owe on it.

How much equity do I have?

For example, if your home is worth $500,000 and you owe $200,000, you have $300,000 in equity. Over time, as you reduce the amount you owe on your home or the value of your home grows, your equity increases. It's that simple.
