Frequently asked questions

What is a home improvement loan?

As the name suggests, it’s a personal loan that is used to make smaller improvements to your home. It is usually an unsecured loan with a short repayment term.

However, if you’re considering a larger, more expensive project, such as an extension to your home, a secured homeowner loan may be more appropriate.

Homeowner loans are secured against your home, which usually allows you to borrow larger amounts.

Do I qualify?

The minimum qualification requirements for a home improvement loan are:

  • You must be over 18 years of age
  • Be employed or self-employed
  • Have a minimum income before tax and super of $23,000
  • Be a Permanent Resident or Citizen

Each lender reserves the right to include further credit criteria. These criteria ensure loan affordability and confirm the creditworthiness of the applicant.

How much can I borrow?

Depending on your income, your credit score and what you plan to use the money for, you’ll be able to borrow between $10,000 and $200,000.

Who is a home improvement loan suitable for?

A home improvement loan may be a good option for homeowners who wish to make smaller or timely improvements and repairs to their property.

How fast are approvals?

When all the required information is provided, lenders generally respond the same day with an outcome. But some more complex applications may take between 24-48 hours.

Please provide your details through our online application and one of our finance partners will be in touch with you shortly.

Our Partners aim for an outcome the same day. They can then send funds to you in less than 24 hours – provided all the required information is at hand.

Approvals can last up to 90 days, so get ‘Pre Approved’ today.

How much are the repayments?

Loan repayments are based on three main factors:

  1. the amount you borrow;
  2. the term of the agreement;
  3. the interest rate.

All these combined determine the repayment amount. Other factors like loan fees and balloons may also affect the monthly repayment amount.

How long is the loan?

Loan terms can range from two to seven years, with four to five years being an average contract term. As a rule of thumb, the longer the loan term, the lower the repayments.

Will it affect my credit score?

Making an enquiry to discuss your circumstances, get finance quotes and fact-find will not affect your credit score. You can discuss all your requirements with a loan specialist.

When you are happy with your indicative quotations and wish to proceed, the lender may perform a ‘hard’ credit search. This is normal and is noted on your credit history. It can affect your credit score, so your consent is required before this happens.

Bad credit score?

We have access to 40+ lenders across the market, so whether you have excellent or bad credit we have options available. You will, however, have a better chance of getting approved if you have a higher credit score.
