Home Renovation Loans

What Are Home Renovation Loans?

A home renovation loan is a type of home improvement loan that is given to people who are looking to make significant changes to their houses. Whether your goal is to increase the value of your house to sell it, personalize it to make it your very own, or fix up a house that is in major need of repair, home renovation loans are available to help you afford the changes. They are an option available to homeowners who are looking to renovate their houses.

Here are some alternative methods to pay for home renovations:

  • Mortgage refinance

What to Consider Before Applying for a Home Renovation Loan

As with any loan, there is some risk involved with taking out a home renovation loan. However, our team can help you keep the risks low and the rewards high. Additionally, the changes that are made are often worth taking the loan out. Here are some additional things to consider before taking out a home renovation loan.

  • The return on investment for home improvements varies. Some renovations will increase the value of your home more than others. For many renovations, the cost of making the changes outweighs the value it adds to the home.
  • You will need a credit score of 620 or higher to qualify for a home renovation loan with a low-interest rate.
  • As mentioned above, there are other options for homeowners who are looking to make changes to their houses. We can help you determine whether or not a home renovation loan is the best option for you.
  • Usually, home interest loans are capped at six times your monthly salary or $30,000, whichever is lower. However, some exceptions can be made.
  • Your maximum debt-to-income ration must be 41% to 45% in order to qualify.
