In 2015 the average total spend on renovations was $68,300, with most alterations being made to kitchens or living areas. And whilst there are a growing number of DIY renovators, 9 out of 10 Australians still hire professionals to upgrade their homes2.
There's no doubt about it, doing renovations on your home is an exciting prospect - and it is way less stressful when you have your funds all organised and ready to go. An unsecured renovation loan with Pepper Money can help you achieve your renovation goals.

With a Pepper Money renovation loan you can borrow up to $50,000 to make your house a home.
You can use our unsecured renovation loan for any type of home improvement. Whether you’re upgrading your kitchen, building a new deck or just making some basic home improvements, our mission is to help you succeed.
We’ll pay funds into your nominated account on the next business day following approval. That means you’ll have the flexibility to pay your tradesmen any way you want. And if your project comes in under budget, you can use those extra funds to pay back your loan sooner, or put them towards your next renovation.
Pepper Money does consider applications that have defaults providing they pass our credit score and application lending criteria.
A credit score is generally provided by a credit reporting body and used to represent the creditworthiness of an applicant. Pepper will use credit scores to partly determine if you qualify for a loan, at what interest rate, and what credit limits. Many factors can impact your credit score including number of enquires, adverse credit listings and personal information held on your credit file.
Pepper is Australia's number 1 alternative lender, and we live our mission: to help people succeed.
We specialise in working on each individual application so we can fully understand your real life situation and help find a suitable solution.
Since 2001, we’ve been helping over 200,000 Australians who don’t tick all the traditional boxes for home loans – and we also provide personal loans as well as professional equipment and car loans. Learn more about us here.
