Financing 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. To finance your home renovation, you can take up either a renovation loan or a personal loan. We suggest to take up a renovation loan as the interest rate (generally less than 5%) is lower as compared to personal loans (6-7%). However, it is likely you are required to show proof of ownership when applying for the renovation loan. Do note that the money from a renovation loan goes direct to your interior designer or contractor, so you can’t use it for your furniture or appliance shopping.
