What is


Equity is the value of your home minus what you owe. It is the amount of your home that you actually own. In other words, equity is the difference between what your home is worth and what you still owe your mortgage lender. As you make payments on your mortgage, you minimize the balance of your loan (your principal) and thus you establish equity. If you still owe money on your mortgage, you only own the percentage of your home that you’ve paid off. Your mortgage lender owns the rest until you pay off your loan. When your mortgage is finally 100% paid off you have 100% equity in your home.
