Rate State's latest article explains exactly how one's home equity can be used as a funding source. They explain the options available to homeowners who feel their house isn't quite “complete” without modifications.
In their article, they explain how these goals can be achieved with a “cash out refinance”, saying, “This is where you take the amount of equity you have in the home, borrow against it, and end up with a brand new loan. This is not an additional mortgage payment per month; it is a brand new loan. Your other alternative is what is called a home equity loan. The home equity loan is when you borrow against the equity in your home but you end up with a second loan.”
Rate State is also very clear about what makes a poor investment for those looking to raise their home's value through renovations. They specifically mention pools as a poor way of improving the value of one's home, and that adding one may in fact decrease the property's value.
