Equity in Your Current Home
How is equity created and how do I know if I have equity in my current home?
Equity is created by either reducing your mortgage through repayments or through your home appreciating in value (aka capital growth). You can work out a loose estimate of your house’s current value by using a free online tool such as homes.co.nz or qv.co.nz. The amount of equity in your current home will determine your finance options and budget for your next house.
First things first - let’s figure out your situation.
The first step to buying your next home is evaluating your situation to help determine how many different options you have available when purchasing your next home. Some options may be ones you’ve never even considered.
There are many different options available when it comes to purchasing your next house:
- Will you sell, then purchase?
This is one of the most common ways to get into your next home. Selling your existing home before buying a new one means you’ll avoid covering two home loans at once.
- Will you purchase, then sell?
Buying a house first puts time on your side. You’re free to hunt for homes without a settlement date looming. Your finances, however, may not be on your side. To secure a new home, you’ll need to come up with the money for a deposit which might be tricky if your equity is tied up in your existing property.
- Will you keep your current property as a rental?
Often not even thought of, but keeping your current property as a rental can ensure a nice bit of passive income for you and your family, not to mention the capital growth for future endeavours.
- Is there an option for you to subdivide your current property?
If you really love the location and are sitting on a nice piece of land, you could investigate the option of building a second house (your dream home or next home) on the land and keeping the existing dwelling as a rental or selling it once the subdivision is completed.
- Would you consider renovating?
