Owning a house is a dream with which every American lives. However, many times borrowers find their dreams getting into jeopardy due to subprime mortgage loans. Mortgage refinancing is an effective means to get over such financial crisis. However, it is not only subprime borrowers who can make use of mortgage refinancing option. Mortgage refinancing is the most preferred choice for getting finances in order to make amendments in the house. Apart from mortgage refinancing, lenders are now providing loans for home improvement through renovation refinance loans.
Real estate markets are constantly changing. Homes that are fitted with latest amenities, and are well-maintained, well-furnished and aptly decorated, are being greatly preference. Renovation refinance loans provide financial assistance in situations where one had already used most of the equity built up over the years on the home.
There are certain factors that influence the loan amount in renovation refinance loans. The foremost factor is the loan amount required for making amendments. However, the lender should be convinced that the home value would increase if the desired improvements are made in the home. Refinance renovation loans are offered at slightly higher interest rates.
Some of the basic documents that need to be presented to the lending agency or bank include a complete plan about the renovations, architectural drawings showing the renovations, income values, credit reports and employment records. The loan amount is disbursed in six equal installments. Accordingly, the borrower is required to divide the entire construction into six equal stages. Before disbursing each installment amount, the work completed till that stage is completely reviewed by the bank authorities. One advantage of these loans is that interest for the first six months is folded into overall loan. Hence, the borrower is not required to make any mortgage monthly payments during the initial six months.
