How to Use Stories: Financing a Room Addition
Adding a room; how should you finance?
Are you planning to renovate your kitchen? Or perhaps you are thinking of building a new patio or deck?
Home renovation costs can add up. You may need to finance the project. But how?
You could borrow the entire amount at once with a home improvement loan. That means using a portion of the money to pay the contractor's first installment, and then tucking away the remaining amount until the project is finished.
One problem. The amount you tuck away is costing you money. Another problem is estimating the amount to borrow.
What if the cost of the project goes up? Or you decide to add some extra features? Going back to the bank to borrow more money can add to your total financing cost.
There is a better solution.
Use your home equity line of credit to finance the project. Borrow the exact amount you need (up to your available credit line limit), as many times as you need whenever you need without incurring access charges and loan processing fees.
Pay the builder once, and then again throughout the project by simply writing the amount you need using your equity line access checks.
And if you find that you need more money for the extra features, no problem. You can borrow again up to your available credit line without speaking to the bank.
You will only pay interest on the amount you borrow, which is much lower than many other credit arrangements. And the interest you pay may be tax deductible additional cost savings. See your tax advisor for information.
You can set your own repayment schedule by paying the minimum payment each month or by paying a little extra. It's your choice.
