Aug 28, 2019By

Tappable equity reached an all-time high of $6.3 trillion in the second quarter as home-price gains made real estate more valuable. The amount of equity homeowners could borrow against before hitting the 80% loan-to-value limit imposed by most lenders rose by $335 billion during the three-month period, according to Black Knight. The new record high is 26% above the 2006 peak in the midst of the housing bubble.
