If you have equity in your home, a Home Improvement Loan may be your best overall option. The amount of your equity is simply what your home is worth, minus what you owe your bank.
Some benefits of a Home Improvement Loan include:
1.) 95% Loan To Value (LTV), which increases the available loan amount, as compared to 80% (LTV). 95% (LTV) provides 95% of your home’s equity, for your loan.
2.) 50% add back, which adds 50% of your swimming pool cost, back into your equity, which increases the available loan amount.
3.) Usually, 100% of your Home Improvement Loan is Tax Deductible.
4.) Low fixed rates, 15-year terms, with no prepayment penalty, and no closing costs.
