If you are thinking about "FIXING and FLIPPING" a home as an investment property, and you have cash to pay for the home, or are using Hard money to fund the transaction at 10-12% with 4 points, I tip my hat to you, until FHA comes up with a product that will be investment property rehabilitation.
With regards to this blog, we will be focusing on owner occupied FHA 203K loans, since that is what FHA offers at this moment in time.
First off, what is an FHA203K Loan?
The FHA203K program is The Federal Housing Administration (FHA), which is part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), primary program for the rehabilitation and repair of single family properties. That simple.
This is an amazing program for the revitalization of neighborhoods and will expand home ownership opportunities for many who are "on the fence", and not sure if they want to buy a home.
For the sake of this blog, which I intend on writing a couple of times a week, and for the sake of not boring anyone, I think it will be an AMAZING "EYE OPENER", if I take you on a journey, on a FHA203K in process, step by step, to show you, hands on, exactly what we are going through from application to close.
I will also be adding a Viral Video of before and after pictures, with an interview of the home buyer, to add the visual for your full understanding.
It is great to finally be back on Active Rain! See you tomorrow
