Following is a partial list of items eligible for this program.

  • Roofs, gutters and down spouts

Dennis: Thanks for sharing- what a wonderful program!  I can especially see its utility in neighborhoods that have been hit hard by abandonment due to foreclosure.  If more lenders implemented such ideas, we might be able to really reduce urban blight.

Dennis - Thanks for posting.  This is a great loan for houses which need a little TLC.  Is this a new program offerd by Wells or is it the 203K streamline?  Thanks - Doug

Dennis: Thanks for the info. Its really worth to know programs like this in this market where lot of foreclosed homes are on sale. Is this similar to FHA 203 K where you have to PMI even if you put more than 20%?

Great idea Wells Fargo. Dennis, thanks for the post. I have a Wells Fargo lender, who didn't even tell me about this. I will ask her today about it.
