Depending on the local housing market, remodeling an older home may be more cost-effective than buying or building a brand-new house. This applies to homeowners wanting a change of scenery as well as first-timers buying a fixer-upper.
How much you can borrow for a home remodel depends on how much equity you have, the current value of your home and its estimated value after construction. Owners with high equity can take out a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) to pay for construction and other personal expenses when needed.
If the home's value has grown over time, owners may choose to refinance their existing mortgage and cash out their equity at closing. Learn more about BECU's home remodeling loan options.
