FAQ

People often ask us

You can use a home improvement loan for any improvements to your primary or secondary residence. Most people use home improvement loans to fund projects like remodeling a kitchen, building a deck, replacing a roof or landscaping.

A home improvement loan offers a simpler, faster process to receive funding without having to tap into equity in your home.

Although both may be used for home improvement purposes, a home improvement loan differs from a home equity line of credit in a number of important ways.

First, a home improvement loan is unsecured, meaning it does not require equity or collateral. A home equity line of credit, on the other hand, is secured by equity in your home.

Second, while an equity line typically takes more than 30 days to open, a home improvement loan offers a faster, simpler process. And while an equity line can be used for other purposes, a home improvement loan must be used to remodel or repair your residence.

Finally, an equity line is a revolving line of credit, so funds become available as you pay down the balance. In contrast, a home improvement loan is a one-time amount between $10,000 and $75,000.

You can borrow any amount between $10,000 and $75,000.

To qualify for a home loan, you'll need to complete an application with the following information:

  • Name
  • Property address
  • Photo ID (driver license or passport)
  • Employment and income information
  • Amount you wish to borrow

We'll review your credit application in accordance with our normal credit approval processes.

You will need to complete a personal financial statement and verify your income with documents such as a W-2 form, 1099 form or pay stubs. Additional requirements may vary based on loan size and other factors.

Terms and conditions subject to change.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) 4.99% as of September 13, 2022, to applicants with an excellent credit score, for a fixed-rate home improvement loan amortized over 36 months, and includes a discount for autodraft from a First Citizens checking account. APR is based upon a rate of 4.89% and an origination fee of $75. Borrower affirms that proceeds of the home improvement loan will be used for improvements to the borrower's primary or secondary residence.

For example: A home improvement loan with an amount financed of $50,000 at a 4.89% fixed rate and including a $75 origination fee would have an APR of 4.99% and you would make 36 payments of $1,496 and pay total interest of $3,859. Current APRs range from 4.96% to 6.17% APR. Loans are available in the amounts of $10,000 to $75,000. Terms lengths of up to 84 months available.

Disbursement of loan funds requires an approved application, signed loan agreement and customer's funding preference. Funding should generally be completed on the same day or next business day once the application is taken. Approval process may take longer if additional documents are needed. Availability of funds may take longer if funds are deposited into an account at another financial institution.
