Apply for your
Home Improvement Loan and Get Approved in Minutes!
Home improvement financing can easily be secured through your
home lending institution via an home equity loan. Home improvements
are the biggest motivator for opening a home equity line of credit
in the first place. One hangup here is of note. Because of the
recent meltdown in housing prices, your home may not be worth
as much as it was 4-5 years ago. This may impact your ability
to borrow as much as you need to secure your improvement. As a
rule of thumb you can only expect to borrow up to 75% of your
equity. Therefore, get a read on your equity first.
Another way to secure financing is to apply for a personal loan.
a loan based on your credit. These loans are readily available
at every financial institution, and, if you ahve a postive credit
history, it should not be a problem securing this type of loan.
A word of caution here, just because you qualify for a loan that
does not mean that you need one. Responsible borrowing starts
with the applicant, not the lending institution.
There are some home improvement companies that will finance your
repairs themselves. This may be a convenient one-stop shopping
experience,but check the interest being charged on the loan, and
ask for a price on the home improvement with and without in-house
financing. The main reason for this is to ensure that he price
charge for the home improvements do not fluctuate depending on
whether you chose to finance with the company doing the improvements.
The price for the actual improvement should be the same or sometimes
even lower for the repairs themselves.
