HomeStyle Renovation Loan
When you buy or refinance a home, HomeStyle Renovation allows you to finance improvements for up to 75% of the property’s as-completed value. (That’s the appraised value of the home once the upgrades are completed). This type of financing can be a more cost-effective way to renovate your home, since it combines the cost of the home and renovations into one conventional mortgage. It also addresses some common financial challenges with purchasing or renovating a home by offering: •Affordability ◦If you’re a first-time homebuyer or combining HomeStyle Renovation with a HomeReady mortgage, your down payment can be as low as 3%. ◦You can also take advantage of cancellable mortgage insurance and today’s competitive interest rates, which may be lower than a home equity line of credit or personal loan. •Flexibility ◦HomeStyle Renovation can be used for any renovation project such as updates to an older home, extensive design improvements, and even to construct or renovate additional living spaces like in-law suites and basement apartments. ◦You can also benefit from upfront draws (this is how contractors get paid for things like permits and architect’s fees) that could help your projects start sooner without you having to spend out-of-pocket. •Simplicity ◦Renovation funds get bundled into your mortgage under one loan, so you only make one monthly payment.
