• Weighing the Benefits of Unlocking Your Equity •

Debt has become more expensive and, as a result, it is costing consumers more to make their minimum monthly debt payments. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Americans’ total credit card debt is currently $856 billion — with a stunning $52 billion increase between Q3 and Q4 2021.

Even with interest rates on the rise, they are still considered low — and equity levels rose nearly 30% between 2020 and 2021In other words, the net savings of a cash-out refinance can still save consumers hundreds of dollars each month.
