Renovate & Repurpose

Love the house, but it doesn’t feel like “home”?

When purchasing a home that needs a little TLC, Typical mortgage loans won’t pay for repairs you want when purchasing a home that needs a little TLC. Not having the cash to make needed renovations or repairs before moving in can be a big obstacle in the decision process.

Our renovation and repurpose mortgage programs may offer financing solutions for qualified buyers looking to renovate or repurpose.  These solutions allow borrowing based on what the house is expected to be worth after the home renovation or repurpose is complete.

This loan allows a borrower to finance home improvements in a purchase or refinance transaction of an existing home.

There are no required improvements or restrictions on types of repairs, but they must be permanently affixed to the property and add value. Renovations must be performed by lender-approved licensed professionals and completed within six months after closing.
