I currently own the land and 2 homes that sit on the land. I have no rent, no house payments, etc. The only monthly bills I have are the basic utilities, water, power, etc. I've recently started a home business, very small. I WANT to buy some tools/equipment, I don't need it but I want to get it sooner than later.
I was curious about taking out a loan or mortgage against my land with 2 homes and using that money to buy the things I want, and putting 80% of the remaining money into an interest earning bank account. Is this a common thing for people to do? I have good credit, I could just get a loan, but I saw this as getting a large amount of money and then using it to earn interest as I don't even need 80% of the money as I stated.
I'm looking for thoughts and tips on the situation, I'm under 50 and I'd appreciate any info you all have. Thanks
