A Complete Home Makeover with a Home Renovation Loan Without Equity

Are you toying with the idea of improving, extending, redecorating or redesigning your home?

Renovations are an excellent way to breathe new life into your home and to increase its resale value. But the cost of home renovations usually tallies in thousands of rupees. Whatever home upgrade or home repair you plan to do, be certain that it isn’t going to be cheap. You might need a home improvement loan to make it happen.

If you do not have a lot of equity in your home, you may not get a home equity loan to carry out your home renovation plans. You may have to look at other finance options.

However, getting a loan for home improvement with no equity doesn’t have to be difficult, if you know where to look.

Types of Home Improvement Loan Without Equity

1. Personal Loan:

A personal loan offers you funds to make large purchases. It is an ideal loan option for one-time use. For example, installing a slate roof, building a new garage, or adding a family room.

It offers a lower interest rate as compared to a credit card. You have to pay the borrowed amount in a set timeframe. You can also customize the repayment plan according to your repayment capacity.

2. Personal Line of credit:

If your renovation plans are ongoing, a personal line of credit is perfect for you. For example, redoing the kitchen and bathrooms is an ongoing process and can spread over to the next year.

A personal line of credit allows you to withdraw money from your approved credit line as necessary and repay it as necessary.

A personal credit line is a product like a credit card, but with a lower interest rate. Once your credit line is approved, you don’t need to reapply every time you want to use the funds from your credit line.
