HomeStyle® Renovation Mortgage

 HomeStyle Renovation Mortgage

Buying a home is an important milestone in your life and we know some people like to purchase a unique home that they can make their own. Here at First Reliance Mortgage, we understand that finding the right financing plan is as important as home improvements.

 

The HomeStyle® Renovation mortgage permits you to include financing for home improvements in a purchase or re-finance transaction of an existing home.   It’s a convenient way for you to make renovations, repairs, or improvements totaling up to 50 percent of the as-completed appraised value of the property with a first mortgage, rather than a second mortgage, home equity line of credit, or other more costly financing method.

“With renovation loans, the buyer can do light to moderate repairs – such as kitchen or bathroom renovations, flooring, roofing, electrical, and plumbing repairs – all the way up to major renovations like room additions and foundation repairs,” Chuck Stuart, Executive Vice President of First Reliance Mortgage.

Borrower Benefits

  • Cost-effective way to renovate or improve a home
