How to Pay for Home Improvement

If you're confused about how to pay for an upcoming remodeling project, don't fret. There are a wide variety of home improvement loans and other types of home remodeling financing to consider.

The solution depends on your finances and the cost of your project. If you are starting an $80,000 addition, then you may need a home improvement loan or line of credit from a lender. This means you are tapping into the equity in your home and taking out a second mortgage. The benefit of this type of home remodeling financing is that you can tap into a large sum and pay it back over two to four years. These types of loans often are tax deductible and carry competitive interest rates.

Using a Line of Credit

If you are doing smaller projects throughout the year, a line of credit can be a better option. This allows you to draw funds as you need them, up to a predetermined limit. While a line of credit is a great option for home remodeling financing, you should be diligent about paying it off in a timely manner.

There also are home remodeling financing options available through retail stores and contractors. Some stores offer special "No Interest" financing, so long as you pay the balance before the plan's expiration date. Otherwise, you will be charged interest, often at 18 to 21 percent.
