Secured Home Improvement Loans

By: Marsha Claire

Looking for a change, something different...... perhaps a new home or maybe renovating your home.......but financial restraints have you fettered to the usual? Don't stop in your tracks and rethink your plans-go ahead, 'coz we've got just what you need.

Financial assistance is something we all need from time to time. There are loans that can give you the money you need to do whatever you want. But here come Secured Home Improvement Loans-loans that lend you money for a specific purpose-to make home improvements.

Secured Home Improvement Loans are loans that are approved if you need to make aesthetic changes to your home or property. They can also help fund renovations, redecorations, additional structural changes, etc. For instance if you want to add a storey to your house or create a beautiful sit-out but haven't the resources, Secured Home Improvement Loans are perfect! They not only make living in your home a better experience but also add to the value of your home. This raises the equity in your already owned property and makes your being a homeowner even more profitable. Secured Home Improvement Loans can be taken by those who own property outright and also by those on mortgage.

Just as the name indicates, Secured Home Improvement Loans are secured, which means you have to pledge collateral against the loan. Collateral is any asset that has sufficient value in it. Once pledged against your loan amount, it stays under temporary possession of your lender. However, as soon as you repay your loan in its entirety, you regain possession. Collateral is meant to create some assurance of your repaying the borrowed amount to your lender. This also means that if you fail to repay the loan, you run the risk of losing your asset to your lender or to the legal system. Collateral, however, is not solely something you need to be aware of, it also adds benefits galore to your plate.

With collateral, you as a borrower are offered significantly lowered interest rates which make you loan more affordable and thereby easy to repay. With lowered rates also comes the option to customize your repayment instalments. This means you can extend your loan term to up to 25 years, cutting your monthly instalments to a small amount, or you can cut short your loan term, increase your monthly instalments and repay your loan faster-which means walking out of debt faster than predicted. With collateral also comes the option of getting larger loan amounts approved to make more changes to your home. Of course, you can only borrow a percentage of the equity in your asset, which changes if you have an excellent credit statement. With a good credit history you can even borrow up to 125% of the equity in your asset.

So allow yourself some indulgence in creativity and start designing your new home today. We're here to help you help yourself - so get going and create that perfect dream abode for you and your family!
