What is a Plunk Home Renovation Loan?
A Plunk Home Renovation Loan is a special purpose loan designed specifically for fixing up your home—for anything from small updates to major remodels. The available loan amount for a Plunk Home Renovation Loan is $20,000 - $200,000.
Using a home renovation loan to fund home improvement has several advantages over credit cards and personal loans, including lower interest rates, flexible loan payback periods, tax advantages, and the simplified application and approval process.
What are the Advantages of a home renovation loan?
Home renovation loans are secured by the value of your home—and therefore the interest you pay in most cases is deductible (consult your tax advisor). The savings related to mortgage interest deductions can be considerable.
With a Plunk Home Renovation Loan, you have much more borrowing power. Because you are adding value to your home, you can borrow against that value. Traditional home lending and even HELOCs allow you to borrow against the current value of your home, while a Plunk Home Renovation Loan allows you to borrow against the future remodeled value of your home—thereby accessing more borrowing power.
Plunk Home Renovation Loans offer lower interest rates than most other forms of credit— typically offered at a fraction of the rate offered on credit cards, retail cards, and unsecured personal loans.
A Plunk Home Renovation Loan can be initiated, applied for, and approved, all from your phone in a matter of just a few minutes. No appraisal and no paperwork, and funding is much faster than going to your bank, savings and loan, or mortgage broker.
Why consider a home renovation loan?
If you have a credit score greater than 620 and want to borrow between $15,000 and $200,000 for a home improvement project, it’s worth considering a Plunk Home Renovation Loan. You would likely benefit from lower interest rates, significant tax benefits, and increased borrowing power.
Can a home renovation loan be added to your mortgage?
While a Plunk Home Renovation Loan is also secured by your home and its value, it is treated as a separate loan from your mortgage and takes a secondary position to your mortgage. Like your first mortgage, the interest you pay is often deductible and therefore provides you with an important and considerable tax advantage.
What can home renovation loans be used for?
Any type of improvement to your home. Remodeling your kitchen, adding a pool, or installing solar panels on your roof, for example. Home Renovation Loans allow you to borrow from $15,000 to $200,000 even if you do not have that much current equity in your home

What are the home renovation loan rates?
Plunk Home Renovation Loan rates are set lower than traditional HELOC rates and are considerably lower than rates on credit cards, retail cards, and unsecured personal loans. Plus, they most often qualify for federal tax savings from the
home interest deduction. This all adds up to savings and/or greater borrowing power.
Are home improvement loans tax deductible?
Generally, you may be able to deduct interest paid on a home renovation loan; however, you should consult a tax advisor regarding all tax concerns.
Is my personal information secure?
Will checking my rate impact my credit?
Checking your pre-qualified offers from Plunk won’t impact your credit score. It generates what is called a soft inquiry. You may see a soft inquiry on your credit report, but it’s only visible to you, not to other creditors or users of your credit report. However, submitting your application will result in a hard inquiry and may affect your credit score.
How long does it take to get approved for a loan?
Most applications can be completed in 5 minutes and will receive approval within a week or less. It's all digital—meaning no paperwork, no appraisal, and no hassle.
