NO! A co-signer is someone who says they will be responsible for the debt, if the original borrower defaults. They have no right(s) legally or morally to equity or ownership in the property.

The simplest calculation would be the current value of the home minus the outstanding mortgage, which is owed to the lender. Equity Share: Equity sharing is a way for a home buyer and an investor to jointly buy property and share ownership. Typically the home buyer has exclusive occupancy rights and takes care of the ongoing financial obligations (mortgage, taxes, insurance, etc.). The investor normally is a passive participant. There are both public and private applications of equity sharing. In the public applications a local government body may act as the "investor" with a primary goal of making the property perpetually affordable for the current and subsequent owner. In such cases, the sale price of the property is purposely limited so that the next owner is aided also. In private applications, the investor is motivated (like the home buyer) by the appreciation of the property value. In that case, there is no price limit for the sale of the home. Equity

Yes you do. *Clarification: if you own the home you are owner of any equity that may be realized by the sale or leveraging of the property. That does not mean the home has equity. It only has equity if it is worth more than loans or liens held against it.

All you have to do is take the fair market value of your home and subtract any and all mortgages against your home. This difference will give you the amount of home equity you have in your home.

One can also calculate home equity as a percentage of the property value. This calculation is just as simple: just divide the dollar amount of the equity in your home by your home’s fair market value. For the previous example, to find out your home equity percentage, divide $40,000 by $200,000. This equals .2 or 20%.
