Using Home Equity to your Advantage

Canadians have been borrowing against their home’s equity in record numbers, taking out billions of dollars in cash each year. There has been a large movement to refinance home loans and pull out equity for things like:

  • Home improvements
  • Investments
  • College expenses
  • High-interest debt consolidation

Many people used to view their homes as a safe haven, but they are now more willing than ever to borrow against the equity they have in them.
