Unlock the Equity in Your U.S. Home
Has your U.S. home increased in value—or did you buy it with cash when the Canadian dollar was close to par with the U.S. dollar? If yes, you may be able to borrow up to 80% of your home’s value to take advantage of your home’s appreciation and the strong U.S. dollar:
- Pull out cash to renovate, pay down debt or cover U.S. expenses without the foreign exchange costs
- Invest your earnings in U.S. or Canadian equities or other real estate
- Easily move the money you earn from the currency exchange back to Canada
