Easy Diy Home Improvement Projects

Check out these do it yourself home improvement projects below:

  1. Add Curb Appeal. Curb appeal adds value to not only your home, but to other homes in your neighborhood. There are many inexpensive projects you could do to add value such as updating your mailbox, power washing the drive-way, or planting flowers and bushes outside.
  2. Add Wallpaper or Paint Your Walls. One roll of wall paper and a few gallons of paint are just enough to transform any room in your house into a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Shop around for the best prices. Adding wall paper to one wall is an easy way to add character and accentuate colors in a room.
  3. Add Carpets and Curtains. Curtains and carpets sound easy enough, but can change an entire room! Update your window treatments and carpets to transform any room!

†We offer personal loans from $1,000 to $25,000, with minimum and maximum amounts dependent on an applicant’s state of residence and the underwriting of the loan. Loans between $1,500 and $7,000 may be funded online. Loans greater than $7,000 or less than $1,500 are funded through our branch network. Specific interest rates and fees are determined as permitted under applicable state law and depend upon loan amount, term, and the applicant’s ability to meet our credit criteria, including, but not limited to, credit history, income, debt payment obligations, and other factors such as availability of collateral. Not all rates and loan amounts are available in all states. Not all applicants will qualify for the lowest rates or larger loan amounts, which may require a first lien on a motor vehicle not more than ten years old titled in the applicant’s name with valid insurance.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. As a result, under our customer identification program, we must ask for your name, street address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

*The process uses a “soft” credit inquiry to determine whether a loan offer is available, which does not impact your credit score. If you continue with the application process online and accept a loan offer, or are referred to a branch and continue your application there, we will pull your credit report and credit score again using a “hard” credit inquiry. This “hard” credit inquiry may impact your credit score.

**15 Day Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with your loan and repay it in full within 15 days we will waive all finance charges with no penalties. Your repayment amount must be in the form of cash or certified funds.

California Residents: Loans made or arranged pursuant to a California Financing Law license.
