There's no place like a renovated home.

We Australians love home improvements. With around 62% of homeowners doing some kind of renovations in the last 12 months1, it seems that renovating is the new upgrading. There are a number of improvements you can make to add value to your home, but it helps to understand the cost before you get started.

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’s 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.

A credit score is used to represent the creditworthiness of the person. Pepper Money will use credit scores to partly determine who qualifies for a personal loan, at what interest rate, and what credit limits.

Credit bureaus like Equifax use the following credit score groupings:

  • Average = 510-621
  • Good = 622-725
  • Very Good = 726-832
  • Excellent = 833-1200
