Why is PACE a good financing option?

In my opinion no other platform provides this kind of quality service as PACE. You can renew your house without thinking about money. House upgrade includes solar system, energy resources, refill electric transportation, roofs, storm protection and many more for you. I have personally seen many financing options other than PACE but they all demand payments with high interest rates.

Ygrene & Traditional Financing

Ygrene provides a large more benefits over traditional financing, credit cards, and HELOC in various sectors. The following advantages of Ygrene are as follows:

  • In Ygrene approval are not based on credit score while in other traditional finance they are based on credit score.
  • Low interest rates in Ygrene while high interest rates with other finances. This decrease the reputation of the institution and decrease the sales.
  • In Ygrene payment ratios from property taxes are fixed while in other there are variations in overall prices.
  • In Ygrene and traditional financing both spread cost over life of upgrade (up to 30 years) which is actually a pretty good thing.
  • The thing I like the most is once a project is completed than you have to send the payment to contactor while all others finance platforms do not provide this kind of faculty. They get the payment before starting the project.
