If you’ve spent the last two pandemic years at home and daydreaming of making repairs or updating your home, you may be able to finance your goals through a personal loan.
Australia has always been a renovation-loving nation, with updating your home all part of the Great Australian Dream of buying property. This is why home renovation is such a popular personal loan type, with a range of options available for eligible borrowers, depending on their financial needs and budget.
For owner-occupier homeowners, a renovation can give a room a much-needed facelift to bring it into the 21st century or add additional space for growing families. And for investors, it may be one option to boost your property value.
Some repairs, maintenance or updates may also be tax deductible for investors, including:
- Repairs to the property
- Management and maintenance costs
- Depreciating assets
- Interest repayments on a mortgage
- Body corporate fees
- Property management fees
- Council rates
- Cleaning expenses
- Advertising fees
- Land tax
Whatever your reason for renovating, it may be worth comparing personal loan options to help you finance your goals. To make your personal loan comparison a little easier, RateCity has put together its top-rated personal loans for April 2022.
