Educating homeowners about their useable equity and what they could do with it has never been more timely for lenders.
In the last 10 years, the median dwelling value in Australia has risen by 57.2%, an increase of around $260,000*. With a median hold period of nine years**, homeowners who bought a while ago will likely have built up equity in their property, through both mortgage repayments and capital gains – equity they can potentially tap into to renovate, upsize to a new home or buy an investment property.
Empower home owners to make optimum property decisions
Those customers who are primed to take the next step want information to help them make the best possible decision. They expect to be able to access up-to-the-minute property insights to understand their financial position.
CoreLogic’s Equity Calculator is a fast, effective way to put home loan customers in charge of their own property ownership journey, helping them move from loaned to owned.
This smart tool allows customers to calculate the amount of useable equity in their properties, then see their options for using it. The calculator makes it easy to research a range of new home possibilities.
