How does it work?
A renovation loan is a mortgage secured by your primary residence, second home, or investment property. The amount is based on the “as completed” value of your home.
That means your lender will underwrite the loan based on how much your home will be worth after you’ve completed renovations.
Other financing options, such as personal loans, home equity loans, or cash-out refinances, are based on the current value, which limits the amount equity available to tap into.
It’s a single-closing transaction, meaning you don’t have to complete a second transaction after renovations are complete.
Lender manages the renovation process, so you don’t have to deal with the headache of managing contractors, invoicing, and payments.
Qualifying renovations include repair, upgrade, or add permanent structures and fixtures such as, but not limited to, additional units, hardscaping, pools, major appliances, and remodels.
Flexible terms include fixed and adjustable rate options and 10 to 30 year terms.
