How Much Can You Borrow?

The number of people using equity release plans is on the up and they are continuously becoming more and more affordable for each client. Whilst there is not an exact sum of how much you can borrow with each equity plan, homeowners are borrowing, on average, 30.8% of their housing wealth.

This is a massive amount of money for every homeowner and can help you with a wide range of financial situations, as well as funding holidays and getaways in later life. Equity is available to all homeowners over the age of 55 and the later in life you take out equity, the better your deal will usually be. With such a large sum of money available, this is a route you should always consider.

Considering Equity Plans

Additionally, more people than ever are also using equity plans to improve their finances. Since 2017, there has been a rise of over 4,000, increasing from 16,805 up to 21,490 new plans being agreed. This includes 38,912 different households using equity release products, demonstrating a massive increase in the number of people using equity.

It is never too late for you to use equity release plans. Even if you are already financially stable, equity plans can still be beneficial and will ensure you have any finances you need at any point in your life. In total, over £390 million has been released through equity plans within the space of a year.

Rising Equity Release Products

In correlation with the number of homeowners using equity release plans, there has also been a rise in the number of equity products available. with interest rates also dropping to 5.22% from 5.96% on average over the past two years, equity release has become a very viable option.

In 2016, only 58 equity release products were available. As of August 2018, this has more than doubled, with over 139 products now available on the market. With so many products available, this gives every individual the opportunity to find suitable equity release products and gain as much money as possible from equity release.
