Find a purchase and renovate loan
When you’re thinking about buying a fixer-upper or a home in need of significant repairs, a loan that allows you to combine the purchase and renovation cost may be the right mortgage product for you. With a purchase and renovate loan, you not only get money for the purchase price of the property but funds to cover cost of repairs and renovations as well.
The benefits of purchase and renovate loan programs include:
- Taking a single loan to cover renovation as well as purchase or refinancing, helping to simplify your debt payments
- Low mortgage rates and low down payment requirements for qualified borrowers
- The opportunity to quickly build equity in your home by purchasing a property below market value and repairing or remodeling it to raise its worth

As a leading provider of mortgages and loans online, we’re dedicated to providing affordable home financing options to both first-time buyers and existing homeowners.
