Here are some of the different ways you can finance a renovation.

  • Top-up: You could top-up your budget by accessing equity or your redraw facility.
  • Home equity loan: This uses the equity in your property to borrow additional funds for personal projects or investment. Equity = your property's market value minus what you owe on your loan. 
  • Redraw: If your current loan has a redraw facility and you have been making additional repayment, you may be able to use these funds to finance your renovation.
  • Construction loan: This is for the purposes of a major renovation and allows you to draw on the loan in stages, designed to reflect the stages of a build. This helps you to save on interest throughout the project.
  • Line of credit: This type of finance lets you access extra money whenever you want, up to your credit limit. This allows you to use it as you need it, rather than apply for another loan.
  • Personal loan: A personal loan is probably better for smaller renovations, however, they can carry higher interest rates and shorter loan terms.
