How can I budget for my home renovation costs?

1. Determine your budget

Consider your finances and be honest about what you can afford.

This doesn’t mean that you will have to limit your renovations based on your current account balance.

Home renovation loans allow you to borrow money specifically for financing your renovation project.

If you do decide to take a home renovation loan to finance the project, be cautious not to overstretch your finances.

2. Be realistic

It’s easy to do a simple google search and list down the various home renovation projects that catch your eye.

However, it’s important to get your head out of the clouds and stay grounded. You should remember to differentiate your needs from your wants.

Keep in mind that the renovation meets your basic needs.

These are those things that will make the home more functional for you and those living in it.

You can consider adding some extras if you can still afford to. These include those things that appeal to your vanity such as expensive tiles for your kitchen back splash.

3. Request and compare quotations

Requesting quotations is a great opportunity to compare different companies and determine which would be the best one to work with.

A reliable contractor will take the time to visit your property and discuss your needs.

They will then be better able to provide you with a quotation for their services.

Never go with a firm that offers to give you a quotation without visiting your home.

A simple online search will bring up various professional contractors.

Go through their websites or ratings and shortlist up to five of them.

Get in touch with the firms to find out what services they offer and how much they would charge for the renovation.

4. Consider doing some things yourself

There are some aspects of renovations that may not require technical skills.

Consider painting the walls yourself or installing IKEA shelves to customize your space.

Doing some tasks yourself can help to bring down the costs of the renovation.

You’ll also have a great sense of accomplishment from having contributed towards achieving your dream space.

5. Have a contingency fund

Often times, your renovation might likely run over budget.

This happens in a good number of projects. It often leaves homeowners frantically seeking extra funds in order to complete the project.

Don’t let this be your story. If you’ve received a quotation for S$30,000 on your renovation, you should budget to spend more than this.

This will ensure that you’ll have a buffer in case you end up spending more on the project.

Who is eligible for a home renovation loan?

To qualify for a loan with Lending Bee®, you’ll simply have to:

  • Be a Singapore Citizen, Permanent Resident or a Foreigner with a valid work permit
  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Be employed / self-employed

What are the benefits of a home renovation loan with Lending Bee?

1. Achieve the look of your dream home

Your home is probably something that you are going to spend a considerable time of your life in.

Hence, it pays to spend a little more to design and furnish it to your liking.

With a home renovation loan, you’ll be able to make up for the deficit in funds and turn your dream home into a reality.

2. Increase the value of your home over time

With the borrowed sum, you’ll be able to spruce up and make improvements to your property.

Thereby, increasing the value of your home should you wish to sell it in the future.

3. No collateral required

As we do not require collateral for you to take out a home renovation loan, the equity of your home will not be taken into consideration.

That said, a tip is to prioritize renovation works that require more work to be done.

Does your bathroom require remodelling? Do you need to change the tiles of your living room? Does your apartment need repainting?

By prioritizing your renovation works, you will also in turn save on your renovation loan.

4. Receive your money in one lump sum

Rather than borrowing money from your friends and family who might not have the means to cover for the entire cost of your home renovation, you might wish to consider taking out a home renovation loan.

With a home renovation loan, you’ll be assured that you’ll receive the loan in one lump sum.

This allows for you to plan your home renovation costs and budget for any unexpected emergencies.

For Singaporeans / PRs:

  • Proof of identity (NRIC, passport)
