We recommend many varieties of home improvement loans including real estate, secured and unsecured loans and even military loans to finance your dream project. One question that is often asked is, “Can I or should I prepay my loan off?” Most home improvement loans these days have no prepayment penalty so you do not have to worry about paying a fee or penalty to pay the loan off early.

In the case of an unsecured loan I often recommend that you prepay the home improvement loan note off as fast as possible without burdening your finances. Unsecured home improvement  loans have terms that range from 3-15 years or more and every year that you carry that note you are paying interest. If you were to prepay the note you are actually going to pay much less interest over time.

In the case of secured loans, these have the potential to give you a tax break by writing off the interest paid over the life of the loan. You should consult with a licensed CPA to determine if your loan would fall into this category. If in fact you have a tax break with this type of loan your CPA will advise you if it makes sense to prepay or just pay the minimum payment and carry the loan for the full term.

All things considered you may want to prepay your loan balance down if your finances can afford this or maybe just pay the minimum if you fall into a category where it makes sense.

Good luck with your home improvement project!
