Here are some suggestions of ways to put equity to good use when you go to take out a home equity or cash out refinance loan.
1. Do a home improvement that will increase equity in your home more than cost of doing improvement. As an example, I have heard rumors that adding a deck to a home, because of amount it increases homes resale value, can add up to 4 times cost of actually installing deck.
2. If you have a low interest rate on your home, invest your equity in a low risk investment that has a much higher return on your money.
