Helen M. from Port Charlotte, FL
I am a widow on surviving benefits and also work part time to support myself. I used the PACE financing program from Renew Financial for two home improvement projects.
The first one was when my air conditioner unit broke, and I did not think it was possible for me to get a new AC system. I first learned about the PACE program and Renew through the air conditioner company that came out to check my unit. I did a lot of research on the program and the company before moving forward. It was then that I found out that I could use PACE for a new roof too, which I seriously needed.
I don’t have the best credit to qualify for traditional financing. After I lost my husband, I lost my job, and I fell behind on my bills for a little while. I considered very seriously selling my home and moving into an apartment because I did not have the money pay for a new roof and A/C upfront. Renew Financial provided me with access to something I did not think was possible for me to get - the means to finance the two major things I needed to get done in my home, the roof and the air conditioner.
My experience working with Renew was wonderful. Everyone was absolutely wonderful, professional, and pleasant to work with. I applied over the phone and was approved the same day. The program was explained to me in detail and everything took place the way I was told it would.
Thanks to Renew, I am able to stay in the home that my husband and I lived in. To me what Renew has done for me has been a God’s send, an absolute God’s send. There aren’t enough words for me to describe the fact that I can stay in my home. I am so grateful to Renew that I can stay in my home and I don’t have to worry about my ceiling coming down or my AC not working when I need it most. I am telling everyone I know to look into PACE and Renew to finance their home improvements.
Renew has made a huge difference in my life. I got a very good term on my loan, and I can comfortably afford the payments. People need to know this. People don’t realize that Renew and the PACE program are out there and that they can get the help they need to fix up their homes to live safer and more comfortably. I am awesome now, thank you Renew!
