A home equity or home improvement loan allows you to borrow money, using your home's equity as collateral.

Equity is simply the difference between how much your home is worth and how much you owe on your first mortgage loans.

Example: Let's say you purchase a home that is worth $100,000 with a down payment of 15% or $15,000, and you plan to pay the remaining $85,000 with a mortgage. You currently have equity of $15,000 in the home.
