and what can I do with that equity? 

Equity in your home is a term used to describe the value of your home beyond what you owe on the mortgage. It is the difference between the current market value of your home and the amount you owe on your mortgage.  

Equity in your home is essentially a form of savings, as it is money that you can access and use however you wish. Although equity in your home is not a liquid asset, it can be used to finance major purchases.

You can use the equity in your home to pay for home improvements or major repairs, or to consolidate other forms of debt.  

You can also use the equity to pay for college tuition or to purchase another piece of property.  

In order to build equity in your home, you can either pay down your mortgage or wait for the value of your property to increase. As you make payments on your mortgage, the amount of equity you have in your home increases.

Similarly, if the market value of your home increases over time, your equity grows as well. It is important to remember that if you choose to use the equity in your home to finance a purchase, you are essentially taking out a loan against your home. This means you will be required to make payments on the loan and responsible for any interest charges.  

It is important to consider the risks associated with taking out a loan against your home before making any decisions.
