Why Move When You Can Improve?

Do you need more living space but are concerned about selling your house in today’s challenging real estate market? Do you love your neighborhood and dread the thought of packing and moving? Then don’t move, consider putting an addition on your home using money from a residential construction loan.

A residential construction loan is often the best solution to pay for an addition or renovation especially when you do not have enough equity in your home to finance your project. With a residential construction loan, the bank uses the after completion value of your home (as determined by an independent appraisal) rather than the current “as is” property value. The appraisal would be based upon your building specifications and plans. By using the higher after completion value, you, the homeowner can borrow enough money to complete the job.

Loan is subject to credit approval.
