Unless you plan to be in your home forever, you should always be considering its value—particularly when you choose remodeling projects, upgrades or even just go about the regular care and maintenance of your property.

Are you worried you won’t be able to pay for these value-adding projects? Consider using a home equity loan to leverage the equity you have on your property and get cash for upgrades, renovations and other projects. You can also apply for a refinance loan, which can get you a lower mortgage rate (and, subsequently, a lower monthly payment) and free up more cash for at-home DIY work.
