You Have Questions, We Have Answers

When you are considering making renovations to your home but don't have the cash upfront to pay for the projects, various options can make it possible for you. A home improvement loan allows homeowners to borrow money for their renovation plans when they don't have the savings to pay out of pocket. Get more information on how home improvement loans work.

There are several things to consider before you decide to take on a home improvement project, the most important being if you can afford it. If the answer is yes, then you should look at the payment methods that work best for your budget and circumstance. Other factors you should consider before renovating are the length of time you intend to stay in your home, whether it increases your home’s value, and how you plan for your project to be completed. Learn more about factors that can help you answer the question, "Should I get a home improvement loan?"

A home improvement loan can be used for renovations and repairs to your property. That includes supplies for repairs and renovations that you do yourself, as well as payments to professionals such as plumbers, electricians, and contractors.

A home improvement loan is a personal, unsecured loan that does not change the amount of equity you have in your property. A personal loan for home improvement can be acquired regardless of how much equity you have in your house, which a home equity loan or HELOC relies upon.

How much you can borrow to finance home improvement generally depends on your own credit score and creditworthiness. Look at your own debt-to-income ratio to determine how much more you should reasonably be able to spend. Midland States Bank can offer home improvement loans up to $25,000. 

Loan terms for a home improvement loan can be up to 15 years. This is why getting a home improvement loan may be better for you than using a personal loan or your credit card.

To finance home improvement, you should have a good credit score and low debt-to-income ratio. You will need to provide information about your credit and your financial situation, including your income. You will also need to have your home information — it will have to be a home under your own name. To complete the loan process, we may require project estimates or receipts.
