Renovation loans address the need of homeowners to finance improvements on their home. Prior to the availability of renovation loans, homeowners only had a few alternatives. These were 1) Pay for improvements in cash. 2) Do a cash-out refinance based on the current value of the home. 3) Take out an equity line or loans, again, based on the current value of the home. This still places the burden of funding the improvements on the homeowner. Renovation loans solve this problem. Email with questions on renovation loans.

loans are available as a fixed rate or adjustable.Construction and renovation loans are a specialized part of mortgage banking and most brokers do not have the experience to guide you through this complex process.

I refer to these approaches as “One Step” and “Two Step”
Renovation loans allow you an opportunity to refinance your current mortgage or purchase a new home and fund the improvements. Renovation loans are then modified at the completion of the improvements to a permanent loan product.
Renovation loans are a variation of the "One Time Close" renovation loans product. The major advantage of renovation loans is that we lend against the finished or "as completed" value of the property rather than the current value of your home as most other lenders do. With other programs, you are out of luck if you do not have enough equity to complete the project.
