What is a Renovation Loan?
Renovation loans are an all-in-one way to purchase or refinance a property and finance repairs and improvements. Renovation loans allow you to borrow based on the as-completed value of the property, meaning you can often borrow more money than with a traditional cash-out refinance or Home Equity Line of Credit which is based on the current value. Northpoint Mortgage has an experienced team dedicated to renovation loans who will help guide borrowers, contractors, and agents of all experience levels through the renovation process.
When should you consider a Renovation Loan?
Renovation loans are great for those looking to purchase a property that needs some repairs or that may not quite meet the buyer’s needs but, with some work, would be a dream home! Renovation loans are also excellent for homeowners who want to make improvements or repairs to their existing homes.
How Does it Work?
Start with your chosen general contractor and their proposal for the work to be done.
Our Renovation Team will work with you, your contractor, and any other necessary parties
Once the loan closes, renovation funds are held in escrow and disbursed as the work is completed.
Renovation loans can be completed with conventional loan products as well as FHA and USDA/RD. Each type of loan has its own unique characteristics. We work with a number of investors, including some State Housing Agencies to find the right product for you. The Renovation Team at Northpoint Mortgage will help guide you.
