Home Improvement Loans

If you need your home to become a dream home, a Home Improvement loan may help that dream come true.  Finance improvements or additions with a loan that features a competitive interest rate.  The amount you can borrow depends on which state your home is located in. Financing $5,000 or more will require a lien be placed on your home. In this situation, the interest you pay may be tax deductible (consult a tax advisor).

What are Home Improvement loans used for?  Home Improvement loans are used to make improvements that increase the value of your home.  Here are examples of what you can use a Home Improvement loan for:

  • Update your existing kitchen into that dream kitchen
  • Create that master bathroom or add in that second bathroom
  • Add that extra addition or garage you always needed
  • Turn your carpet into hardwood
  • Replace a bad roof or windows
  • Build a beautiful patio
