Home Improvement Loans

Turn your home into your Dream Home!

A Home Improvement Loan offers a great way to add value to your property and enjoy your home even more through the improvements you want to make.

  • Major Improvement Projects Only -- complete remodel, room additions, full landscape projects only.
  • Minimum $250,000 loan amount
  • 1st Mortgage only (this is a bank program)
  • OWNER-PRIMARY and SECOND HOME only -- not for investment.
  • Remodeling or room additions
  • Pool & spa and complete landscape projects

This program requires full income documentation, proper debt-income ratio, and reserves. A licensed general contractor is required (no owner-builder). In addition, work may NOT have already commenced on the project -- you will need approved plans, but this program is NOT a "completion" loan for major home improvement projects.

Funds are drawn on a disbursement basis as work is completed, per a draw schedule.

A 2/1 ARM is the default program for our home improvement loans, though fixed terms of 3/1 and 5/1 are available.

"You were the only lender we spoke to that would allow us to get cash from our home without owning it for at least a year. We were able to get our landscaping done with the new loan. Thank you so much for your help."
