  • Opening Intro -

    At some point, you may find that the home that seemed perfect many years ago simply doesn't meet your needs anymore.

    Therefore, it may be necessary to spend money upgrading the kitchen, finishing the basement or adding a garage.


Fortunately, there are many different ways to come up with the money needed to upgrade a property. Here are a few tips to help you come up with money for your home improvement projects including renovation financing.

Budget and Save More

According to Policy Genius, you should take a careful look at what kinds of things are in your budget in order to find the money needed to pay for upgrades to your home. You never know if you’ll need some extra wiggle room in the budget for emergencies like pest damage or a broken pipe.

Take a look at your general budget for your household and see if there are any things you could eliminate to create some extra room in your home improvement budget. For instance, you could cancel a gym membership, get rid of the deluxe cable package, or transfer credit card balances to a single card with a lower interest rate.

Find Loans Specifically for Home Improvement

According to EnerBank, home improvement loans have many advantages over other funding options. First, they can be easier to get because the loan is generally secured with a lien on the home itself. Second, they generally come with lower interest rates because they are secured as opposed to unsecured.

Banks, credit unions and other financial institutions may offer home improvement loans. Contractors and home improvement stores may also offer credit cards or lines of credit to help finance a remodel. An FHA 203(k) rehab loan may be available to those who have just purchased a fixer-upper.

Sell Items That You No Longer Need or Use

You likely have a variety of items around the house that you no longer use or need anymore. For instance, you could sell the baby clothes or toys that your older children don’t wear or play with. There is a good chance that someone would pay for tools or lawn equipment just sitting in your garage collecting dust.

You can find buyers for your items online, at flea markets. or by holding a yard sale. There are even apps like the ones on this list from Well Kept Wallet that can help you sell things. Buyers can also be found by advertising at local shops or in newspapers.
