How to finance your home renovation?
The average cost of home renovation in Singapore is about $50,000 – $60,000 for a BTO 4-room HDB flat. The cost will vary depending on how extensive the works you require, and the choice of materials you use.
If you need to take up a loan to finance your home renovation or styling, our friends at Singsaver have shortlisted the top renovation loans here. Renovation loans have lower interest rates than personal loans, so we do recommend you go for that option unless you need it in cash to purchase items. Read 6 Renovation Websites for Inspiration & Free Quotes.
Since renovation loans often do not give you the cash upfront, you will not be able to use it for your furniture shopping. Despite slightly higher interest rates, personal loans will give you cash flexibility. Our friends at Singsaver have also compiled the best personal loans for you to check out.
When shopping for your home, do keep in mind to prioritize and focus on the essentials first. Leave the ‘nice-to-haves’ for later, for it’s best to not spend beyond your means. When buying your furniture or appliances, make sure to apply for credit cards that give you rebates, so you get extra savings. Every little bit of savings can go a long way!
