HOME IMPROVEMENT LOANS give consumers a viable option to pay for remodeling projects when they do not have much equity in their house or would rather not take on credit card debt. Many contractors recognize the value of offering finance packages that en- able clients to afford a job; how- ever, few of them have the time or bandwidth to absorb the services into their organization. A number of lenders now part- ner with remodelers to provide flexible choices for customers who could benefit from a home improvement loan. More compa- nies also have developed an app that can walk homeowners through the process and render a decision on their loan application before contractors leave the house, which can help close additional sales and increase their bottom line.

Customers can transfer their application from the app to a live lender at any stage in the application process, and contractors have the ability to build custom loan templates that can jump-start the loan application process for their customers.
