1800CASHOUT hotline signals there is no end in sight for mineable equity
Today, direct-to-consumer mortgage lender Strong Home Mortgage LLC is reporting growing demand to its national 1-800-CASHOUT hotline and 1800payment website domain. “What we are hearing and seeing right now paints a clear picture,” the president says Mike Peoples. “The significant home equity combined with a growing need for cash makes any conversion between the two highly desirable.” The hotline and website have been generating national interest for June 6.
The $207,000 median usable equity¹ is good news for US households and signals an accelerating trend line. In March 2022the number was $185,000 (Market watch)2 i.e. 21% more than the $153,000 announcement August 2021 (Mortgage reports).3
These reports are beginning to offset what has been a difficult last week for US consumers. On Friday, inflation hit a 40-year high of 8.6% (Bloomberg).4 On Saturday, average gasoline prices reached $5.00 for the first time (Time).5 The Fed has now raised interest rates three times since March. Jamie DimonJPMorgan Chase CEO predicted ‘economic hurricane’ (CNBC)6 which now seems prescient.
But turning home equity into cash flow isn’t just about battling economic stressors. This also fuels the popularity of HELOCs.seven “Homeowners view exploitable equity as an effective way to increase renovation budgets and potentially further increase home value,” Peoples shares. Remodeling can then capitalize on home hacking, remote work, multi-generational living, and other developmental opportunities.
Strong Home Mortgage predicts exponential growth for home equity solutions. Peoples adds, “There’s no end in sight for usable equity, as home equity loans and helocs empowering consumers – and that’s not easy to achieve right now.”
