What is equity?

Equity is the difference between your home's value and the amount you still owe on your home loan. You can borrow against this equity to buy an investment property, do renovations or for any other purpose.

You can access your home’s equity by refinancing. This involves replacing your existing home loan with a new one, ideally with better terms and conditions and a lower interest rate.
