Home Improvement Loans
All homes need maintenance, and West Side & Black Rock-Riverside NHS offer a variety of programs to finance home repairs for borrowers of all income levels . We offer low-interest, interest-free and deferred loans to help with home repairs, with rates and interest varying depending upon the specific program for which a homeowner qualifies. Services for all loans include inspections and construction monitoring to make sure our customers get the best work for their money.
Specific qualifications for different loan products vary.
What it covers:
The loan includes the cost of repairs plus closing costs.* When we approve your loan, you'll also receive construction monitoring services from our construction specialists to ensure contractors complete work correctly and for a reasonable price.
We work with you to determine a reasonable payment, and we give priority to repairs that address building code violations, emergency conditions, and health and safety issues.
