Bathroom remodeling is an immensely popular upgrade for American homeowners, including updates to fixtures and decor to serve the room as both a place of relaxation and refreshment. If your contracting business includes bathroom remodeling, make your services even more attractive by offering turnkey financing. Partnering with a topnotch financing service makes accessing funding easy while boosting your bottom line.
Partnership with a simple, effective financing company is a major key to success for your bathroom remodeling business. Rather than obliging your clients to scramble for funds before they can hire you, you can offer instantly-approved financing and your renovation services together as part of one, seamless package.
When remodeling a client’s bathroom, the last thing you want is for some of your profits to go down the toilet because of high financing fees or time-wasting payment-collection efforts. A modern financing partner reduces or eliminates contractor fees, letting you keep more of your profits. Additionally, they pay you immediately for your work once it’s done and then handle the receipt of payments themselves, freeing up your time for new endeavors.
Adding a regular, fairly low payment to customers’ monthly budget frees them from the concern that they will deplete their available cash trying to renovate their home. You can point out that this low monthly payment is much preferable to the possible high future repair costs from rotted floors, mold and mildew from leaks, and other damage or problems caused by an aging bathroom – not to mention the issues that could arise if customers try to do the project themselves.
When persuading customers to engage your services, having a solid, fast, simple method of financing available is obviously key to saving people cash up front. However, depending on the region of the country, a homeowner selling their home may also recover anywhere from 40% to 70% of a bathroom remodel’s cost when they finalize the deal. A remodeled bathroom increases overall home value by around 3% on average.
Any home with more than one bathroom offers the potential of multiple remodels as homeowners are likely to want matching updated sets. According to the Census Bureau’s “Survey of Construction,” close to 61% of new single-family homes built in 2019 feature two bathrooms and just 3.7% of these new constructions include only one bathroom. High-quality, easily obtained financing makes a double (or triple) remodel much more attractive and affordable.
In short, yes. At first glance, older houses might seem less profitable for a financing service and contractor partnership. After all, most feature only a single bathroom compared to today’s overwhelming average of 2 or more. Yet, oftentimes, lack of modern conveniences and styling, the wear and tear of long use, and possible long term damage from moisture and lack of proper ventilation can make older home bathroom jobs expensive.
Municipal building codes can potentially generate more demand for high- priced bathroom remodeling projects best offset by good financing. For example, many locations don’t allow a new bedroom to be legally listed as a bedroom in real estate ads without an associated bathroom, or a certain amount of bathroom square footage. Adding another bedroom may compel a homeowner to add a new bathroom, too, or expand an existing half-bath into a full bath. With a good financing partner, you can point out to potential clients that they can spread out the cost of a code-mandated bathroom renovation without adding much to the up-front expense of “fixing up” their house before selling it.
Any equipment, service, installation costs or other project related to home improvement qualifies for financing. The following is a partial list of what PowerPay finances: HVAC equipment & installation, attic insulation, stone veneer, windows, siding, roofing, kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, cabinets, carpet, deck & patio, doors, fireplaces, garage doors, smart home equipment & installation, hardwood flooring, paint & wall coverings, hardscaping, landscaping, siding & exteriors, tile, stone & countertops, air conditioning & heating, gutters, spa & pool, home additions, deck building, tile installation, basement remodeling, custom cabinets, fence installation, lighting installation, garage building, cabinet installation, backsplash installation, electrical and plumbing and appliances.
50% of all home improvement investments over $5,000 are financed. Additionally, over 30% of all homeowners research financing options before making a home improvement purchase. Offering financing enables you to close more sales and earn more money on every job. By translating a large, expensive home improvement into a low monthly payment, you’re less likely to lose sales because of pricing, and you’re less likely to see customers haggling with you over costs. Quite simply, offering financing can help you to grow your business.
We were founded by a home improvement professional who knows firsthand the power of financing as well as the damage fees can do to your bottom line and your customers’ pocketbooks. The average contractor pays 7.5% in fees on every financed home improvement project. That’s why we eliminated all unnecessary fees, coverage charge and penalties.
PowerPay also offers the longest payment options – up to 15 years. Our rates start at 8.99% and we can offer up to $100,000 loans with staged funding for qualified contractors.
Customers don’t pay you. PowerPay will direct deposit funds into your account via ACH within 48-hours after the install. You keep 100% of the funds, and your payment is guaranteed when you complete the project. It’s simple, fast and easy. No more collection calls and chasing clients for payments.
By using PowerPay, you are giving your customers options to pay for home improvements with financing. Your customer will apply online using our online application form and a decision is generated in seconds. Once approved, you can complete the transaction with your customer from our easy-to-use portal. Electronic documents will be sent via email and your customer can sign electronically – we are fully paperless. Your customer won’t get any bills for a month or so after installation. You will get paid by PowerPay in full after the installation is complete.
There are a number of ways to offer PowerPay to your customers:
First, your clients can apply at GetPowerPay.com
Second, we can supply you with a link or button for you to add on your website.
Third, customers can apply by contacting our call center and using your dealer/contractor ID.
Finally, your salespeople can provide a link to apply or use a tablet with our application form during in-person visits.
While other finance companies serve as “middlemen” and take fees from you for allowing you to offer financing to your customers, PowerPay does not act as a middleman or lead generator. That’s why we are able to not charge any fees. We have funding commitments for $15 billion. Every borrower is approved through our systems and all loans are processed through our system. That means that we control the rate and loan term, and service every loan.
With PowerPay, enrollment is through a simple form that takes 2 minutes. After that, our team will train and onboard you or your salespeople at no cost at a time that’s convenient for you. Our process is so simple that training takes less than 30 minutes. We can have you up and running and writing loans in one day.
A “No-No” loan is also known as a deferred-interest credit card loan. We don’t offer teaser loans for a few reasons. Studies show that most customers that qualify for these loans can afford to pay cash for the home improvement. So, by offering these loans, you are paying an average 10% in bank fees, and either eating the cost of the loan or passing it on to your customer. This doesn’t make sense. The main reason to offer financing is to help the customers that cannot afford to pay cash for a home improvement. Deferred-interest credit card promotions don’t help customers that need it because the payments are much higher and if they are late or miss a payment, they’re hit with heavy penalties and an acceleration of the interest payments. Rates can be as high as 30%.
We don’t believe in these loans. We offer a fair, low-interest rate with 5-, 10-, and 15-year options so your customer can get the lowest payment possible. A low monthly payment with no fees ensures that everyone is happy—both you, and your customer.
