How to Get a New Kitchen
By: Kimberly ShallenbergerCameron

Do you want to improve the look of your home? Have you thought of adding value to your home with a brand new kitchen?

The thought of home improvements, like a new kitchen, can be lingering thoughts. Projects like these can be expensive endeavors when most of us do not have the additional funds sitting in a bank account screaming for you to spend.

Maybe it?s time you consider a Home Improvement Loan. You may have heard different terms like Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) or Line of Credit. A HELOC could be the easiest and cheapest way to make improvements to your home and have your dreams become a reality.

A HELOC offers a low interest rate, usually tied to the prime rate and a low monthly payment, secured by your home. As the home owner, it frees you up to do whatever improvements you want on your home or property.

With a HELOC, you can have up to 100% of your home?s value available to you for improvements, rehabbing and life?s unplanned emergencies. You only pay for what you spend leaving funds available for other projects and/or emergencies. The loans are typically repaid over a 10 year amortization schedule.

A mortgage lender can better provide details and current rate information. Your available income, credit score and equity in your home will play a part in determining your rate and ability to qualify for different program options. Your lender will also be able to explain to you any tax savings and other advantages the loan may have for you.

A HELOC can help you with: getting that new kitchen, remodeling a bathroom, building a home addition, buying new furniture, landscaping in the Spring, and so on. What you spend your money on is entirely up to you.

Remember, financing shouldn?t be the most difficult part of getting that new kitchen you?re dreaming of! With a simple Home Improvement Loan, you?ll be on your way to harder decisions- like picking out the new cabinets and light fixtures!
