203K Loans

Make your new or existing house the home of your dreams with an approved FHA renovation loan, insured by the Federal Housing Administration.

There are two versions of 203k loans. A 203K Streamline is best for when repairs come to less than $31,500. The "full k" or standard 203k which can over up to $625,500 for the purchase price and repairs.  

  • Low down payment requirements
  • Relaxed guidelines

Standard 203K option is best for major structural repairs such as room additions, foundation repairs, fire damage, flood damage or major site improvements.

 

How Can You Benefit From 203K Loans

Streamline 203K option is best for non-structural repairs and can may allow you to qualify for a loan amount up to $35,000 (requires a reserve fund for 10%) These non-structural repairs would be repairs such as new paint, carpets, appliances, kitchen or bathroom remodels, plumbing, electrical work, and/or HVAC or septic systems.

 

Borrower Benefits

  • Turn an average home into a dream home. Qualified homebuyers can improve less-than-perfect homes in desirable locations or address property shortcomings immediately without draining your savings.
  • Make the home your own — removing the previous owner’s style. Everyone has different tastes — you don’t have to live with the previous owner’s choices.
  • Fix things the previous owner may have ignored — windows, roof repairs, etc.
  • Get more house for the money. REOs and foreclosures are still a large part of the real estate inventory. Buyers can take advantage of reduced home prices.
  • Rolling rehabilitation costs into the mortgage allows borrowers access to repair funds at lower rates.

  • Down payment as low as 3.5% of total amount of purchase plus costs of repairs
  • Gift funds are allowed
  • Seller may contribute 6% of purchase prices toward closing cost and pre-paids
  • Purchase of owner occupied primary residence
