FHA 203(k) financing – Eligible Properties

Mortgage and Lending with Cross Country Mortgage Corporation 770-634-4021 NMLS #206275

FHA 203(k),first time home buyer, mortgageOne of the most underutilized financing programs available is the FHA 203(k) program for home buyers that want to buy homes in less than perfect condition. 

The FHA financing programs have allowed many first-time homebuyers over the last two years to achieve their dream of homeownership with its minimal down payment of 3.5% and low interest rates. 

The FHA 203(k) financing program will include the cost of the repairs into the mortgage financing. The down payment will be calculated based on the acquisition costs plus the cost of the repairs.

To qualify for this program the property must be eligible. Some of these requirements include:

·        1 to 4 family residence

·        completed value must be sufficient to support the purchase and complete the rehabilitation cost

·        the property must be 100% complete and at least one year old - partially built homes and unfinished new construction are not eligible

·        the FHA appraisal needs to identify and "as is" value and also "subject to improvements" value.
