Determining your equity

To determine the equity you may have available, you can either use your property tax statement or a current appraisal. This calculation is based on a 90% loan-to-value. The loan-to-value for your loan may vary.

Using your property tax statement:
Value of your home $___________________ x .90 = $ ___________________

Using a current appraisal:
Appraised value $ ___________________ x .90 = $ ___________________

Take the figure above and subtract any existing first mortgage balance.
Figure above $ ___________________
Mortgage balance $ ___________________
Remainder $ ___________________

If the remainder is greater than $5,000, you are a candidate for a home equity loan or line of credit (pending credit approval).
