How to obtain financing for remodeling a house that I just bought?
I am going to buy a fixer upper and want to customize the house as per my specific needs. How do i obtain financing for the remodeling since I will have only 10% equity (which is the downpayment) in the house? Does the remodeling company offer financing? Can i get a loan from the mortgage company itself to remodel the house? I don't have equity in the house so if there is a provision to do something like this then can someone please explain it to me Thanks
