The number one question we hear from homeowners who want to take out an equity release scheme relates back to how much they’d be eligible to receive. After all, if you are in the market for a home reversion or lifetime mortgage product, it is likely because you want some extra cash during your retirement. That extra money can mean a lot of things. It could enable you to take a trip you’ve always wanted or buy a fancy car you’ve dreamed about having. It could also mean gifting your children or grandchildren with some needed cash while you are still around to watch them enjoy it.
It doesn’t matter what you plan to spend your cash on but rather that you need or want the cash in general. However, it is really crucial to know how much equity release you are eligible to receive in order to make sure it fulfills your financial obligations and plans.
It is quite easy for us to determine how much you could release from your home. Simply give us some basic details and we can give you an estimate that can help you with your planning. You can also use our free equity release calculator. Simply input some straightforward information like your age and the age of your spouse, if applicable, the value or your property and the amount outstanding on your mortgage.
The calculator will give you a good idea of how much equity you can release but you also want to make sure you are taking advantage of the most appropriate equity release product for your individual needs and situation. You may even be eligible to receive more equity than you actually need to release. Speaking with an expert can help you decide just how much equity you should release.
