Home Improvement vs Home Extension Loan: Know the Differences

Difference between Home Improvement Loan and Home Extension Loan

We all love living in a good home and on timely basis we keep on doing home improvements in our homes as it adds substantial value to our living style. Home improvement could include remodelling, painting, internal and external repairs, and even bigger construction work such as adding a floor or a washroom. It is an expensive thing but then there are several financing options available for home improvements.

Home Improvement loan is available at attractive interest rates from SMFG Grihashakti depending on the applicant’s profile and eligibility. Further, home improvement loans can be availed of typically for a tenure of 15 years.

A true Home Improvement loan is based on the appraised value of the renovations you plan to carry out. When you apply for an actual Home Improvement loan, the lender requires you to obtain bids from the contractor you plan to hire for your project. The lender will then appraise the bid to make sure it reflects a reasonable price and proper quality of work. After checking the bid and your credit, the lender will offer you a loan to cover the price of the work. The lender will inspect the work periodically before releasing payment to the contractor.

On the other hand, a home extension loan - as the name indicates, is used to extend your existing home - like adding a new room, a new balcony, etc.

A home extension loan is an ideal choice if you want to increase the living space in your current home. For situations such as a growing family, need for a work space(s) / study space(s), and so on; home extension is certainly amongst the most cost-effective ways to fulfil this need for more space. Easy home extension loan availability to finance the activity is an additional benefit of this solution.

SMFG Grihashakti offers exciting home extension loans to eligible applicants. Apply today to know more.
