Single detached home - Richmond, BC

$700,000 - bought in 2015
$1,325,000 - current market value

$625,000 gain in 6 years or $104,000/year 

These homeowners have built equity and now have the option of upgrading to a bigger house or apply for a HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit) and use the proceeds for home renovation, pay off higher interest debts, etc.

When you are able to pocket $625,000 and pay down a bigger down payment, your monthly mortgage payment could even be less than what it was originally.

Your options open up.
