A few key benefits of Renovation Loans:

  • Straightforward payments – With a Renovation Loan, you combine the costs of construction into your mortgage, putting your costs in one place.

  • Get more house – By remodeling a home needing repairs, many homebuyers are able to both buy larger homes, or buy in areas they normally couldn’t afford. 

A Renovation Loan might be a good fit if you:

  • Want to include the cost of construction in your mortgage

  • Are looking to live in an updated home 

  • Want to get more home for less by renovating a fixer-upper
