Can you get a swimming pool loan in Michigan?

Yes, you can finance an inground or above ground pool in Michigan. You may be surprised to find out that you may have several options to choose from when it comes to pool financing.

One option is to take out a home equity loan or line of credit. This can be a good option if you have equity in your home and you're comfortable with the idea of using your home as collateral. Secured loans such as these are usually best for more expensive pool projects. The application process can be lengthy and qualification requirements can be strict.

Alternatively homeowners often use home improvement loans, also known as personal loans, to finance a pool in Michigan. Michigan has many local banks and credit unions that can offer home improvement loans, but you may find the best deals online. There are a number of online lenders that offer home improvement loans in Michigan. Home improvement loans do not require collateral and can be funded in just a few days. They can be a good option for less expensive pool projects, say $100,000 or less.

Another option could be to finance through the contractor. Some contractors may partner with third party lenders to offer financing for customers. While this can be a convenient option, it may not always be the most cost-effective option.

What are pool loan interest rates in Michigan?

With any form of financing, the interest rate can vary depending on what you qualify for. Factors such as credit score, income, debt-to-income ratio, and more can affect the interest rate you qualify for. In addition, certain states may have legalities around interest rates and what lenders can charge. In Michigan there are limitations regarding interest rates and fees. While state limitations may have no actual bearing on what consumers pay, they do exist, so be familiar. In Michigan, laws impose a 5% maximum interest rate with a written contract.

How much does it cost to build a pool in Michigan?

The cost of building a pool can depend on a variety of factors ranging from preparing the land to finishing touches. Along the way, you'll have many decisions that can impact the cost. By setting a budget upfront and sharing it with the contractor or builder, they can make recommendations to help you stay within your budget.

The average cost for an in-ground swimming pool in Detroit, Michigan is approximately $33,000. On the other hand, building an above-ground pool can save you money with an average price range of just $700 to $5,000.

How to qualify for a pool loan in Michigan?

Most lenders have requirements that you'll need to meet to qualify for a pool loan in Michigan. Online lenders often have the least strict requirements so keep that in mind. Requirements usually include income, credit score, and debt-to-income ratio. Some lenders may not have set in stone income and credit score requirements. If you have credit challenges or struggle to prove income, you can search for a lender with no requirements. In most cases you will start the loan process by submitting an application online or in-person. As part of the underwriting process, the bank or other financial institution will review all of your information and get back to you with a loan decision.

Some types of loans are much easier to qualify for than others. For example, personal loans are fairly easy to obtain, and you should receive a loan decision within just a few business days, if not immediately. On the other hand, a home equity loan requires much more paperwork and time to receive both your loan decision and your funds. You may need to complete a home appraisal or submit additional documentation about your property since it is used as an asset to secure the loan.

If you do not qualify for a loan, you can try applying with a cosigner.

What is the cheapest way to finance a pool in Michigan?

The cheapest and best way to finance your Michigan swimming pool will depend on a variety of factors. Each borrower needs to evaluate their financing options based on their own unique personal financial situation and credit score.

Equity-based financing options (such as home equity loans and home equity lines of credit) often come with the lowest interest rates, but also carry the highest risk to homeowners. And if you do not have enough equity in your home, you won't be able to take advantage of these options.

On the other hand, personal loans are some of the easiest loans to obtain and are usually still cheaper than using credit cards due to lower interest rates. Some personal loans may come with origination fees depending on the lender and your credit score.

What credit score is needed for a pool loan in Michigan?

The minimum credit score required to obtain a pool loan in Michigan will depend on the lender and the type of loan you select to use. However, most lenders want to see a credit score of at least 660 in order to extend an offer of financing to applicants. If your credit score is below 660, you can still qualify for a loan. There are plenty of lenders that can help borrowers with credit scores in the mid 500's or higher, but the loans may come with higher interest rates.

Is financing a pool in Michigan a good idea?

The return on investment you can expect to receive from installing a pool varies from state to state. In southern climates where pools get frequent use, homes with a pool are often in higher demand. In northern areas, they may be seen as a liability. In addition, some neighborhoods and HOAs do not allow above-ground pools, which is another factor to consider. Be sure to factor in the increased costs of owning a pool including maintenance, cleaning, and repair.

On the other hand, adding a pool can increase your property value by as much as 7%. Financing a pool in Michigan may be a good idea if your family plans to use the pool often enough to see a good cost-per-use value. And while you can't expect to recoup 100% of the sunken cost, you should be able to get back 40-50% of the installation expenses in many real estate markets.

Whatever you decide, be sure to shop around and get prequalified for loans from a few different lenders to help you compare interest rates and consider your financing options.

How to finance a pool in Michigan?

As we mentioned above, there are several different ways to finance a pool in Michigan. If you're planning a large extravagant pool costing $100,000+ you may need to use a secured loan. However, for an everyday swimming pool a home improvement loan may work perfectly. Home improvement loans do not require collateral and are easier to obtain than a secured loan. However, they may have higher rates than secured loans so don't rule out other options. Every loan will have its own pros and cons so be sure to compare your options carefully.
