203k consultant walnut creek: FHA loans in Walnut Creek, Orinda, and Lafayette? Of course! - 11/27/12 11:49 PM
There were many years when you thought of an FHA loan as a low income loan for homes in less affluent neighborhoods. Not any longer, at least for a while longer. Better get yours done asap.
Why would you want an FHA 203k loan in any of these areas? Simply this... you don't want to put all the money down to purchase your home. You would like to keep some cash in the bank.
Example 1: Purchase price $850,000 + construction cost of $100,000. If the property requires repairs of $100,000 you won't likely get a loan of any size on … (1 comments)

203k consultant walnut creek: Investors and the FHA 203k loan program - 03/08/12 03:21 PM
Investors and the FHA 203k loan program This post will tell you of an investor loan product you can use right now as you wait for the FHA to get their act together.
While investors used to be able to purchase fixers and get the money to fix them up with the FHA 203 loan guarantee program. That was quite a program. It had a feature called "the escrow commitment procedure" that allowed the final "after improved" value to determine the 96.5% loan amount. The investor's profit was incorporated into the loan and the loan was "assumable" so once the borrower … (0 comments)

203k consultant walnut creek: 203k consultant Walnut Creek - 12/01/11 01:37 AM
The FHA 203k loan program is alive and well in Walnut Creek, Orinda, and Lafayette. Wow. who would have thought. When I got into this product in 1994 the FHA loan limits were so low that the projects were always in low rent districts. 
Today we have many 203k projects where the borrower is buying a property that requires repairs in order to get a mortgage loan, where the values of the homes start at $500,000 and then they add the money for the repairs for another $150,000 and end up with a home that has equity.

203k consultant walnut creek: Time is of the essence on 203k project completion - 07/11/11 03:45 AM
You can tell people a hundred times that time is of the essense and the work should progress at a good pace through completion. Sometimes it falls on deaf ears.
Example 1: Recently a client closed a 203k loan and became incomunicative. No one could get hold of her. The contractor failed to start the work saying he MUST have communication with the client prior to entering her property to start the work, and rightly so. I drove over to the home and whne I made contact dialed the contractor thinking it was handled... NOT
Several meetings were missed but finally … (0 comments)
