So how has the property boom affected you?

From the sidelines it’s been like watching a rodeo, as buyers and sellers get tossed around by a runaway bull market. The rest of us are just as happy to be on the outside looking in, glad we’re not directly affected. But that’s not strictly true! Given that a large part of your personal wealth is tied up in your home or other properties you may own, the fact is your financial standing has changed, maybe quite dramatically. And unless you’ve had your property revalued in the current market, you don’t really have an accurate picture of your current worth.

Chances are your equity has grown significantly in the last few years and that may offer some pretty exciting opportunities – to fund that extension you’ve been wanting to do, finance your business, bankroll an investment property, help the family or pay for the holiday you’ve been putting off for so long.
