October - Using Home Equity

There are numerous benefits to owning your own home. Not only does it provide you with a place to live, but you can also often use the accumulated equity for many money-smart purposes. Borrowing further against your home is a serious financial decision and should only be done after careful research and consideration. This session will discuss the pros and cons of borrowing against your equity and also review the different ways you can do so.

You’ll also get a chance to confidentially determine your own Financial Health Score and the steps you can take to improve that score.
