Although a home renovation is not to expensive, we won’t always have the extra funds to invest in a renovation. Then I will advise you to apply for a further home loan.

The bank will first see that you can afford the monthly payments. Then they will calculate whether the renovations will be financially wise for you and if it will add the needed value to the property.
