How Can You Build Wealth Through Your Home?

There are many financial and non-financial benefits of homeownership, and the greatest financial one is creating wealth! Homeownership is and has always been a great starting point towards forming household wealth.

No matter where you are looking to gain homeownership or investment, one factor that will remain constant across the board – Homeownership builds wealth through home equity, which is the difference between what you owe on the outstanding balance of your home and it’s fair market value.

Just in the past 12 months, there has been a swell in the wealth created through increased positive home equity. CoreLogic released the data that you can find here.

In short, “many homes have regained equity and the outstanding balance on the majority of mortgages in this country are now equal to or in a positive position when compared to their loan balance.”
