Make your home sellable

By: Aisha Cristal
Home is still the best place to live on the earth. Home is not the mere residence , rather provides the required financial assistance at the time of need. Loan can be availed against the equity of the home. So, any renovation or remodeling of your home definitely add to its market value.

In the UK loan market, specific loans are available for home renovation purpose. Keeping the sky scrapping real estate price in mind, these loans are now at high demand. Customers generally prefer well furnished rooms to the semi-furnished or semi-developed ones. So, renovation is the smartest way to increase the market value of your immovable property.

Home improvement loans of acclaimed popularity are the fixed rate loan without any security. But the prime condition of loan availability is that the loan amount must be used for home improvement projects. These loan are specially designed for individuals looking to finance their home repairs, remodeling projects, room additions, a pool and more, without tapping into the equity of their existing home home. You have the option to access information regarding these loans and balance through online banking. Transfer of loan amount is done online.

However, when you are in need of a larger amount you are bound to go for the secured home improvement loans. These loans are secured against your existing home and promises you up to 80% of the market value of it as loan amount. 2-3 years later, these loans used to offer 125% LTV as loan amount but the global credit squeeze has reduced the LTV. But the 80% LTV is also not a small amount as on an average the value of a home in the UK is near about 200, 000 pounds. So, you can raise a handsome amount for the renovation purpose by pledging home security.

Be it secured or unsecured, the home improvement loans come with many benefits. The secured plans offer you lower rate of interest, higher repayment tenure and installment holiday options. However, the flip sides are the repossession risk, relatively slower loan processing and bulky paperwork. On the other hand, though the unsecured loan plans charge a higher rate of interest and lower repayment tenure, the loan availability is fast and risk free. You do not need to pledge your property as security against the loan amount. You should have a fair idea regarding the prevailing conditions in the UK loan market before applying for the loans. Online search and comparison enables you to avail the cheapest loan deal according to your requirement and repayment capability.
