Equity Takeout Toronto

For most homeowners in Toronto, their home equity is often the biggest component of their net worth. Equity Takeout is used to “take out” equity to use for other purposes. Some of the most common uses of Equity Takeout are:
  • Home Renovation: Of the $41 billion in equity takeout in 2016, a recent survey shows that 31% (or $12.8 billion) was used for renovation/home repair. One reason for this is that home renovations are expensive and saving a lump sum is not always easy.
  • Paying down debt: Some debts are more expensive and urgent than others. You can use equity takeout to consolidate debt (to pay off expensive debt for which you are paying high-interest rates and get a cheaper one). Taking care of bad debt will improve your credit score. 28% of those surveyed said they used the cash for debt consolidation.
  • Education: Education in Canada is not cheap and it cannot wait until the end of the amortization period. If you feel that a professional certificate will further your career, equity takeout is a good idea.
  • Down payment on another property: If you are looking to become a property investor, especially one that brings income, home equity is a good source of the down payment required for the mortgage.
  • Investment: $9.1 billion (22%) of the home equity taken out in 2016 was used on investment. You should be careful with this because investments can go either way.

The Equity Takeout may be a variable rate arranged like a line of credit (where you withdraw case at your discretion) or a fixed rate.
Traditional lenders in Toronto allow you to borrow not more than 80% of your home’s equity while private lenders go up to 85%. The Canadian government implemented this guideline in response to the 2008 credit crunch to ensure borrowers do not overstretch themselves. This means if your home equity is $200,000 as per our example above, you can get a maximum of $160,000 with a traditional bank. If you are hard-pressed for cash and you don’t have any other source, you may have to go to a private lender. However, you expect to pay higher interest rates with a private lender. There are several equity takeout options available to Toronto borrowers. At Approved Mortgage Broker, we will guide you on the best takeout option given your particular circumstances. Different lenders have different equity takeout terms – we will help you hunt and negotiate for the best deal. You need an experienced mortgage broker by your side because it is in a lender’s best interest to give you the highest possible interest rates. Contact the Approved Mortgage Broker team today for professional guidance throughout the process.
