Money Magazine recently reported that college tuition is increasing faster than the rate of inflation. If you have high school-aged children, buying a condo could be less expensive than paying for room and board for the next four or five years â€“ especially with the tax break and charging rent from your childrenâ€™s friends. Perhaps downsizing to a smaller home makes more sense now with the children gone. Either way, you may want to tap into your home equity to manage this time of tremendous change.
Interest rates are at their best levels in five months and are near the lows of late last year. If you’re thinking about buying a home or capitalizing on your home equity, you have many options available to address all the big changes that may impact your financial success.
