This Guide is a must-have for anyone planning to finance the renovation of an existing home or purchase a home in need of remodeling.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
RenovationReady™, home renovation loan and construction specialists, has made its newly published A Practical Guide To Home Renovation Lending available to consumers at no charge at http://www.renovationready.com.
“This Guide is a must-have for anyone planning to finance the renovation of an existing home or purchase a home in need of remodeling,” said Jim Fraser of RenovationReady™. “Renovation loans provide the funds to purchase or refinance the property “as is” and finance the repairs. These types of loans are more complex when compared to standard home purchase or refinance loans. We created A Practical Guide To Home Renovation Lending to help consumers make informed decisions about home remodeling and financing options.”
The 14-page illustrated booklet contains detailed information about:
- Types of renovation loans, including FHA 203(k) and Fannie Mae Homepath, and how they compare to standard purchase and refinance home mortgages
- Process for obtaining a renovation loan and the documentation required
- Costs that go into remodeling a home, including insurance requirements, and how to calculate maximum renovation loan amounts
- How to obtain funds from a renovation loan during construction
- Home renovation project timeline, including the time it will take to assemble a project team to completing the work
It also includes frequently asked questions about home renovation and scenarios of actual projects.
“There's never been a better time to buy a low-cost fixer-upper in a great neighborhood, or remodel a current older home in need of an upgrade,” said Fraser.
