Main points to consider with the Brighte Personal Loan

A personal loan from Brighte allows borrowers to pay for almost any form of home renovation at a competitive rate and low fees. Personal loans from Brighte are available from $1,000 to $30,000, come with a fixed interest rate of 8.77% (fixed) (comparison rate 9.71% p.a.) and are unsecured. Unlike Brighte's 0% interest payment plans, this form of finance is available on terms of up to 7 years.

Brighte offers its personal loans through its accredited vendors. To find vendors, you can either ask your vendor of preference if they offer the Brighte personal loan, or if you access the Brighte website, it will match you to an appropriate vendor partner.

Brighte personal loans are available for most forms of home renovations. However, if you are looking to renovate your home to improve its sustainability (e.g. solar panel installation, etc), you may be able to qualify for a lower cost Brighte Green Loan instead. For personal loans for purchases outside of home improvements, please refer to our guide.
