How does using your excess value work?

Using your excess value means you take out a new mortgage or you increase your existing mortgage. The value of your property will be transferred to your bank account. We call this redeeming excess value.

You can use the excess value for large expenses, an investment or as a gift. 

This might be interesting for a lot of people as prices of houses have gonne up in recent years and the interest rate is still low.  


When can you use your excess value? 

  • The value of your property is higher than your mortgage
  • You earn enough to be able to afford a higher mortgage

Can I also benefit from the excess value on my property?
You probably can!

House prices in the Netherlands have gone up by 40% on average in the past three years. What does this mean?


Increasing your mortgage means you can make the most of your excess value, which you can use for whatever you want: a nice car, investing in real estate, early retirement of a financial gift to your children or grand children.


The excess value can be used if the outstanding mortgage is lower than the value of your property. For example, you can use €100K excess value if your mortgage is worth €250K and your property is worth €350K. If this is possible in your situation, depends on your salary.

Why not use another type of loan?
Monthly charges are a lot lower!

A personal loan is often charged a 5-7% interest, however, the interest rate on a mortgage is approximately 2%. That’s a lot less expensive!

When using your excess value, you take out a mortgage. The bank is running a smaller risk compared to a personal loan, which means you pay less interest. You can pay off the loan over a longer period of time or take out an interest-only mortgage. As a result, your monthly charges will be lower compared to other types of loans.


Benefit from the low interest rate by updating your mortgage

The mortgage interest rate is still at an historic low, however it is slowly increasing again. Make the most of it while you can!


When doing our calculations, we also check if you can refinance your mortgage in order to reduce your monthly charges. This might make it possible to use your excess value without an increase in monthly charges.


Every month, you pay interest and (usually) pay off part of your mortgage. The mortgage interest rate is increasing but is still quite low! Something you can still benefit from.


The interest you pay has been agreed with your bank when you took out your mortgage. This doesn’t mean you are stuck with it. Refinancing your mortgage gives you the chance to benefit from a lower interest rate. This could save you hundreds of euros per month.  


In 2010 the interest rate was 6%, these days it is often lower than 1.5%. Taking out a new mortgage means you could pay 75% less interest compared to 2010!

Buying a second home (abroad)

Use your excess value

Marco and Elisa had been thinking about buying a property in Spain, where Elisa is from. But how do afford a second home?


As the housing prices have gone up considerably, Marco and Elisa have got excess value on their property in the Netherlands. Their salary has also gone up, and the interest rates have come down. This means they can get a bigger mortgage compared to ten years ago.


Vixx advised them to use part of the excess value by using a partly interest-free mortgage. This reduces their monthly charges. Renting out their apartment in Valencia as well enables them to pay off their mortgage. It gives them the chance to enjoy their dream home in Spain without an increase of their monthly charges.

Early retirement

Use your excess value

Harald and Emma wanted to retire early but continue living comfortably. They won’t receive their pension and National Old Age Pension until they are 67. How is it possible to retire when you’re only 63?


They were able to free up a nice amount of money by using part of the excess value on their property. Enough to carry them over until they are 67.


Vixx compared all offers and closed a mortgage at the most economical provider. Harald and Emma can take early retirement and continue travelling to see the world!

Help your children buying a property

Use your excess value

Lily has two children who would like to buy their own properties. But it’s not easy for them to get a foot on the property ladder.


Talking to Vixx made Lily realise there was a possibility after all! There was a considerable excess value on her property due to an increase of the value of her house and the payments she has made so far. Also, her interest rate was a lot higher (5.4%) than the current interest rate.


Vixx arranged a different interest rate on her mortgage and the chance to use part of the excess value. Her daughter borrowed this amount via a so-called family mortgage. As a result, her daughter was able to benefit from her parents’ financial capacity. As the mortgage was transferred to another mortgage provider, Lily’s monthly charges did not go up.
