Your property’s remaining equity value can be calculated using the following example:


If 80% of your house value can be put towards a loan and you have an existing loan for 60% of the house value, you can use the remaining 20% (80% – 60% = 20%) towards an additional loan. In addition, any principal paid off in existing loans can also be put towards an additional loan.
