How Home Improvement Financing Works
During the sale process you go over the value, timeline, and estimated price of the work your customer wants done on their home. Depending on the scale of the project, some of your customers end up stuck waiting for their application for a home equity loan or a mortgage refinance to go through. However, you can save time, close sales faster, and help your customers by offering a simple, flexible home improvement financing option.
Foundation Finance’s home improvement and renovation financing process is simple. You or your customer completes a short credit application online. We offer approvals for customers with FICOs as low as 600 so you can get your customers approved faster. We’ll typically let you know if your customer is approved in just a few minutes.
Once you have an approval, you can complete the home improvement financing documents online to print out or send them for electronic signing. After that, it’s just a matter of completing your project and submitting a completion form for funding. We will make a quick verification call to your customer and fund you by ACH. At that point, we handle all the billing and collection activities.
We also offer our home improvement contractors a variety of reduced APRs, half-pay, same-as-cash, and deferred payment programs to help close sales.
