Short Sales and FHA 203k Loans....Real Estate’s Vinegar and Oil

Process, Procedures and Best Practices
 
Second in my series to help real estate agents and consumers understand the opportunities that are available in considering renovation or customization of a home at the time of purchase or as an alternative to selling in the first place.  Many, many people think that custom construction is a arena of real estate that is only available to the very wealthy.....the FHA 203(k) program is available to anyone from the first time home buyer to the CEO of a major corporation.  The program is open to anyone who … (19 comments)
