How to Successfully secure a Home Renovation Loan

    1. Decide on the Type of Loan

Will the loan be a home equity loan, first mortgage, second mortgage or line of credit?

    1. Compare Available Options

You need to research and make comparisons between different lenders first before settling on one.

    1. Process of Approval

To approve your loan request, the lender will first need to analyze your credit report and current financial status. Your Debt ratio is an important factor that lenders use to make credit decisions as well and may determine which option may be available to you.

If the borrower plans to sell the home in the near future then a line of credit may be a better option as it can be paid off at any time, compared to a fixed term mortgage which may incur penalties and interest to discharge before the end of the term.
