What is home equity?

Home equity is the current value of your property less any amount you still owe. For example, if your property is worth $800,000 but you still owe $200,000 on your home loan, then your home equity would be $600,000.

Can I get a renovation loan with bad credit?

While it can be more difficult to get approved, it is possible to get a renovation loan with a bad credit score. However, it’s important to remember that each time you submit a loan application, a hard check is performed on your credit history. Hard checks can temporarily lower your credit score. So consulting a personal loan broker before submitting any applications can be a great way to gauge the likelihood of approval without impacting your credit score.
