Everyone wants to turn their house into their dream home, or at least make small updates here and there, but that’s often easier said than done. Whether you’re upgrading your space or gearing up to sell, renovating your home is a big undertaking and financial decision.
In 2018, U.S. homeowners spent $340 billion in total on home improvements and repairs, according to a report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University.
Completing home remodeling and improvement projects can add a lot more value to your house, make it more attractive to potential buyers (should you put it on the market) and allow you to enjoy your home more. However, you might not know where to begin or how to finance home improvement projects and upgrades. Many people find that personal loans can be an easy way to finance their home remodel, because you can apply and, if approved, get the funds within a week without having to put up any collateral like your home.
The funds can be used to cover a wide range of projects — from freshening up your home’s exterior, tackling a roof remodel or refinishing a room to name just a few. To truly boost your entire home’s value, you can consider a couple of these upgrades.
