10/06/2022: What is a Renovation Mortgage Loan?

Do you wish you had the funds for a renovation of your current home? Or did you find a house with a lot of potential but needs some TLC – refreshing updates, home improvements and repairs? 

You might wonder how to finance home improvements. 

A renovation mortgage loan from State Bank could be precisely what you need to make a house into your dream home! 

Whatis a Renovation Mortgage Loan? 

A Renovation Mortgage loan, occasionally called a renovation home loan, is a style of loan that includes funds specifically for repairs, renovations, and remodels. If you are purchasing a home, it will consist of extra money for the home improvements. However, you can also obtain a Renovation Mortgage loan in the form of a refinance and renovation for a home you already own. The funds are intended to be used for larger projects, such as: 

  • new flooring 
  • an HVAC system 
  • roofing 
  • updates to a kitchen or bath 

The funds for the house and the repairs are rolled into one mortgage and one convenient monthly payment. 

When to Consider a Renovation Mortgage Loan You may consider a renovation mortgage loan if you are looking at a fixer-upper that needs work but has a low asking price. The additional funds can help you make the repairs quickly and efficiently. Renovation loans are also viable options for homeowners who do not necessarily have the cash for repairs or renovations. 

Home renovation loans are typically issued for renovations and upgrades that will increase the property’s value. In addition, they can help homeowners and buyers build equity in the property through the improvements.
