It doesn’t matter whether it’s your own home or a rental property. Every property is getting old at some point and requires a refresher in various areas. As long as it is all about renovation and not renovation, the costs and effort associated with the work are still reasonably limited.
In spite of all this, financial spheres can also be reached when renovating, which many consumers had never imagined and therefore cannot raise the money required for this on their own. A loan for the renovation must be taken out in order to be able to carry out the work properly and in a high quality.
Is a home loan worth it?
When renovating a home, many consumers always think of a home loan. It can be taken up at very favorable conditions and is also available when larger amounts of credit are required. The disadvantage, however, is the fact that the loan for the renovation is entered in the land register in the form of a building loan, which can be viewed as a security as well as a burden.
In addition, a construction loan is only worthwhile from a sum of around 50,000 USD. And this should hardly arise for a simple renovation. We therefore recommend that you only consider the home loan as a loan for the renovation once all other options have been examined and exhausted.
The installment loan
The most classic loan for a simple renovation is the installment loan. It offers a free use and can therefore be used flexibly. In addition to the costs of the renovation, it can also be used to buy furniture that is subsequently needed. Or the many small things like new screws and dowels for hanging the pictures and attaching the shelves, strips and carpets, colors and accessories. There are many smaller and larger additional costs associated with a renovation, which are often forgotten and then double the budget.
The so-called housing loan is also very worthwhile. It is specially tailored to the renovation or refurbishment of a house or apartment and can also be included if it is only a rental property. Interest rates are usually somewhat lower than for installment loans. However, the money from the housing loan may only flow into the renovation and not into other things, since it is a dedicated loan.
The Lite lender loan
If you want to beautify your home with the help of a loan for the renovation, you can also sometimes get state funding. Lite lender Bank’s low-interest loans come into play when the Lite lender “Modernize Housing” program is used. If the renovation also achieves an energetic improvement, additional funds and low-interest loans can be obtained from Lite lender -Bank.
It is important that funding and loans are always applied for before starting work. Since the loans and grants are earmarked, cost estimates must be submitted with the loan application, which show the amount of the costs incurred and thus show how much the loan amount for the renovation must be. You can apply for the services at any bank that works with Lite lender -Bank.
