At this time of year, many Portage County families come together to celebrate the holiday. It’s also the time when many realize their houses are just not quite large enough to host all of their guests and loved ones. Are you one of those Portage County property owners hoping for a bigger area to call home?
You may have enough equity in your current home to move up.
According to the Q3 2019 U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report by ATTOM Data Solutions,
“14.4 million residential properties in the United States were considered equity rich, meaning that the combined estimated amount of loans secured by those properties was 50 percent or less of their estimated market value.”
This means that 1 in four of the 54 million mortgaged properties in the U.S. have at least 50% equity. If these homeowners decide to sell, they can use their equity to put toward the purchase of a new property. Maybe you’ll be one of them.
The National Assocation of Realtors recently posted their 2019 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers showing that,
“This year, home sellers cited that they sold their homes for a median of $60,000 more than they purchased it, up from $55,500 the year prior. This accounted for a 31 percent price gain, up from 29 percent the year before.”
If you’re one of the Portage County many property owners with big dreams of owning a larger home, let’s get together. Working with a trusted advisor to find out how much equity you have is a perfect first step in putting your move-up plan in motion.
