Home Renova​​​​​tion Loan

A home renovation loan is exactly how it sounds, mortgage financing provided to a homeowner for renovations. As a homeowner you have a variety of ways that you can access your home equity for some home renovation funds. Not every home renovation project is the same and therefore not every mortgage will be the same. At Mortgage for Less we're dedicated to find you the best mortgage and rate for your financial needs and goals.

Ways to obtain a Home Renovation Loan

There are a variety of ways to obtain home renovation mortgage financing. Two essential ways to obtain financing for renovations is through obtaining funds through a mortgage refinance or from your home equity through a second mortgage or equity take-out.

Another possible way to  obtain funds for home renovation is through a home equity line of credit. A HELOC is a revolving line of credit based upon a portion of your home equity and it can be helpful if you're planning a variety of home renovations over the coming years, allowing you to borrow whenever and whatever you need.

It's important to note that a lender will not likely finance a major renovation like adding another level or an addition to your home. The benefit to a lender approving a mortgage for home renovation is that the borrower plans to add value to the property that is mortgaged against.

A home renovation adds value to the security for your mortgage, while a major home renovation has the risk of damaging the structural integrity of a property and/or decreasing property value due to a poorly executed or unfinished construction.

I have used Mortage For Less for all my mortgages since purchasing my first home nearly 15 years ago. From our first experience Nick has always been amazing at providing advice and negotiating great deals, and we have been a loyal customers ever since. Nick also jumped in quickly to help us work out a line of credit through our mortgage when we inquired a few years ago, and he provides interesting updates on the market. I plan on sticking with Nick for as long as I own a home.
