Home Improvement

Turn your home into your dream home

If you’re thinking about taking out a home improvement loan, there are several options to consider. First and foremost, your mortgage consultant needs to know why you want a home improvement loan. Here are some factors to take into consideration.

  • How long have you been in the home?
  • Will the improvements increase the property value?
  • Are you making improvements to increase energy efficiency?
  • Will improvements be made in one fell swoop, or in stages?
  • What is the current outstanding balance on your mortgage?
  • What is the appraised value of the home?
  • How much will the improvements cost?
  • What improvements will be tax deductible?
  • Do you have other revolving debt that you would like to pay off at the same time?
  • Are you making improvements because you plan to sell the property?

Often times a traditional cash-out mortgage can satisfy your home improvement needs. Contact First Rate Lending to see which program is right for you.
