Frequently asked questions

What is an all-in-one construction remodeling loan?

WaFd Bank’s All-in-One Construction Remodeling Loan is a home loan based on the estimated value of your home after the remodel. To determine that value up-front, we order an appraisal based on your plans for improvements. The entire project is underwritten at one time and you can lock in a permanent, fixed interest rate before you even start the project. Please note that rates can change daily. Subject to a lock-in deposit.
