So you need to finance your home improvement project. That could be a smart move - especially if the renovation increases your home value. So let's review best financing options:

Financing Options

Using the Equity Value in Your Home is one of the best financing option for home improvement and remodeling.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (or home refinancing) allows you finance home improvement and other family needs at minimum cost. You have two fairly common options:

1) applying for a home equity line of credit or loan; 2) refinancing your home with a cash out option.

Bank Equity Program

The equity in your home can become a bank for financing home improvement, college, and even paying off your mortgage.

Instead of using your checking account to receive and pay out funds, you will use your home equity line of credit account for all income deposits and expense pay outs.

You become the bank.
