4 easy steps to upgrade to the home you deserve.
Step 1: Choose a project that is PACE eligible.
Our program is specifically designed for use with home improvement upgrades tied to renewable energy, energy efficiency, safety, resiliency, and water conservation. Common projects financed with PACE include:
Step 2: Qualify regardless of your credit score.
PACE isn’t a traditional loan, so we don’t use your credit score to determine if you are eligible. Approval for PACE financing is based on the amount of equity you have in your home, your mortgage payment history, and your ability to repay your PACE assessment.
Our program is currently available in three states and over 650 communities and we are expanding availability all the time.
Step 3: Choose affordable PACE repayment terms.
Your PACE assessment is repaid as part of your property taxes. This innovative approach offers low, fixed rates and long repayment terms, so your payments are always affordable. You get affordable financing that may cover 100% of your project costs, with $0 down. Most importantly, you get the home you deserve.
Step 4: Work with PACE-certified contractors.
We can connect you with one of our certified PACE contractors, or you can use a contractor of your choice and we will enroll them in our program. Either way, you get the peace of mind that comes with working with an approved PACE Funding contractor.
Authorized contractors must pass our full screening and training process:
- They must be licensed and insured.
- We check how long they have been in business and their on-line customer reviews.
- They are required to complete our PACE education course.
- They are not paid until you provide written and verbal approval that your project is complete.
- We pay them directly when your project is complete. You will never even see a bill!
