To calculate how much you can borrow, take your home’s current value and multiply it by 60%, 80% or 100%. Take that figure and subtract how much you still owe on your current mortgage. The result is your available equity.
For example: If your home is worth $100,000, then $80,000 will be 80% of it. Next, if your current mortgage balance is $50,000, you will subtract it from $80,000. The maximum amount you can borrow for 80% is $30,000.
