Did you know?

You can get include renovation costs in your mortgage to purchase a home. Paying off your renovation costs at mortgage interest rates can make buying a fixer-upper affordable. Talk to your mortgage provider about how to qualify for this option. It works like this:

You estimate the costs of improvements (up to 10% of the value of the house) and the future value of the house with the improvements.

You pay for the improvements out of a line of credit and when they are completed the house is reappraised to confirm that the improvements were made.

Then the remaining funds are released. You pay off your line of credit and the amount is added to your mortgage.

Testimonials

We really appreciated Lisa’s help finding the perfect condo for us in Nanaimo. Lisa was a pleasure to work with, responding promptly, cheerfully and efficiently to even the smallest request. She worked tirelessly to get us familiar with different neighbourhoods and to consider different options. Even after the sale was completed successfully – which she facilitated professionally and expeditiously – she was always available to help. Working with Lisa was a great experience.

We had been planning a move from Calgary to Nanaimo for retirement purposes for a few years. Upon discovering Love Real Estate Group a relationship began. Over a period of time, with patience, professionalism, good humour and integrity, Love Real Estate Group helped us secure a home that met our needs and our wishes. We are happy to recommend Love Real Estate Group to anyone looking to buy a property in the Nanaimo area.
