Attn: Special Adjustable Rates Available Until For Residents Of Virginia & Neighboring States!

When considering a improvement loan / home equity loan, you should think about refinancing your home with cash-out.  Rates can differ with a home refinancing over a home improvement / home equity loan.  So, find the loan type that will be smoother, easier, less-hassle, and cheaper for you.  We offer both home improvement loans and cash-out refinance loans.  When contacted by us, kindly ask our loan professional which loan type makes more sense for you.  They will be more than happy to get you the best loan for your particular circumstance.  Remember, all loans don't fit all people; if you need a mortgage loan, we'll find the right one for you.

A home improvement loan is money offered by a bank for a home owner to do home remodeling, home repairs, or even to update their home - a loan a borrower takes out to finance remodeling, alterations, or repair structural damage to an existing home.  However, a cash-out refinance will do the job better.  For a home improvement loan, the property you intend to do improvements to does not have to be the property that secures the home improvement loan, another property may serve as security.   With a cash-out refinance, your present home will provide the security.  Please note that Peak Home Loans are experts at getting our clients the hassle-free, low cost, easy approval on the home improvement loan they desire.  Another thing to remember, most people have better credit than they think, at least Fair Credit, keep this in mind while filling out our online form.

These types of loans can be either unsecured or secured and are usually for a short period of time, typically 3 - 5 years.   Home improvement loans, according to WellsFargo.com, are used for the purpose of increasing the value of your home.

Therefore, you want to think carefully about where you want to put your money.   In the end, the total cost of your home will be what you paid for it plus the improvements you put into it, and you want to get back all this money plus some when you sell your home.

Home improvement loans are meant to do just that - improve your home through remodeling, repairs, or updates.  There are a myriad of choices when it comes to getting a loan for home improvement.   They don't have to be secured by the property being worked on.   A lender can just decide to classify it as a home improvement loan.   They are usually for a shorter term and can be either unsecured or secured.

There are several uses of a home improvement loan.   Remember, the intent is to raise the value of your home so give careful consideration to what you want to do and its long-term impact on your home.  You want to be sure you can get the full cost of your mortgage and home improvement loan back out of the property if you decide to sell.

Points to think about before beginning a home improvement loan:

  • Impact on the neighborhood.  You can make your house the best on your block, and you can also put it right out of the neighborhood price range.  That could make it more difficult to sell later.
  • Maximum budget and available equity.  If you have room between your purchase price and current selling prices for other properties similar to yours, then it's an easy decision to invest on improvements.
  • Excellent return on investment.  Be sure to think about those repairs that are historically shown to increase the value of your home.

Home improvement loan project ideas:

While the total possibilities of projects are too numerous to mention, here are some popular improvements and repairs that give a good return on investment when it comes time to sell:

  • Additions.  Another bedroom if you have two bedrooms now, or another bathroom if you have three bedrooms or more to one bath.   Or, if you have a two bedroom home, think about creating a master suite with his and her closet space and a full bathroom.
  • Updates.  The rooms that get outdated quickly are kitchens and bathrooms.  Going with trends can reduce the value of your property in just a few years.  Try to maintain a classic style in those rooms.  Soft colors in neutral hues never go out of style.  Good improvements include updated appliances and furnishing and space maximizing designs.
  • Curb appeal.  Curb appeal is the perception others have of your home from the outside as they are driving by or standing on the curb.  Landscaping, updating siding or a new paint job can make a vast difference in the perceived value of your home.

The challenge when setting out to do a home improvement loan is in making your hard earned money stretch the furthest it can.   But, at the same time, your improvements must raise the value of your home significantly enough to make the project worthwhile financially.   This can be a tricky thing to do, but with planning and foresight, it can be done.  And it's being done everyday in America.

If you are stuck in the vicious circle of not being able to borrow money to improve the value of your home because your home lacks sufficient value.  HUD can help with home improvement loans, visit HUD.gov for more info.  They have what is referred to as 203(k) Rehab Mortgage Insurance, a loan that have low interest rates over a long term that covers purchasing and improving a property.  This solution protects both the lender and borrower.

Whatever you decide to do, Peak Home Loans can help you secure the home improvement loan that best meets your needs.   We can help with fair, good or excellent credit situations to find you the best rate and the best terms.  Peak Home Loans is here to help.
