Frequently Asked Questions

Your Loan Consultant is your go-to person for additional information.

Unsecured Swimming Pool Loans

Unlike an unsecured personal loan that can be used for any purpose, swimming pool loans are designed specifically for financing major home remodels, renovations, swimming pools and the like. They are usually for projects exceeding $25,000 and offer desirable rates and extended loan terms (up to 20 years) so borrowers will have affordable monthly payments. These loans do not require property as loan collateral. Instead, the lenders look at a borrower’s ability to pay (income and debt) and creditworthiness (credit scores).

Pool Loan Fees

Loan terms, including fees, vary and change frequently.  It’s important to consider all loan terms when comparing loans, including rate, term, loan amount and fees, if applicable. Your Viking Capital representative will disclose all terms for comparison and so you can make an informed decision.

Not Sure How Much You Need To Borrow?

Yes. We can start the loan process even if you are unsure of your project cost. You can estimate the cost or provide us the amount you have budgeted for your project. Your Viking Capital representative will advise you on your loan options, including the monthly payment amount you can expect to pay with your estimated loan amount.

How Funding Disbursements Work

Some loans will disperse the entire loan amount into your account at the completion of the loan process. Other loans make disbursements directly to your contractor/builder at pre-defined work milestones, per your contract, that you acknowledge as complete.
In some cases, a loan approval and disbursement of funds can occur in one day – even the same day! However, some loans require documentation from the borrower as proof of eligibility. So as the borrower, you can impact the process timeline. Be assured, Viking Capital has a great processing team who works with each borrower and lender to expedite the loan process.
