Than an FHA 203K Renovation Loan may be right for you.

The stage is set for renovation loans to become a bigger part of housing. Fixer-Upper homes are an increasing percentage of home inventories and will most likely continue to grow. 

So get ready to embrace one of the most dynamic loan programs available in Today’s market.

FHA 203K Rehab loan Offers a solution that helps home buyers obtain financing that covers both the acquisition and rehabilitation of the property.

Here is an EXAMPLE:

Let’s say you are able to save the minimum down payment of 3.5%.  However the homes in your price range in the neighborhoods you desire to live in need to be remodeled.  Where will you get the cash for the renovations?

 Or, you have saved enough for the down payment and the renovation cost, however the lender will not give you a loan on a home without toilets, or HVAC system.  Now what do you do?

As is Sales price $115,000

Cost of renovation $20,000

Total Purchase and Improvements $135,000

Required minimum Down payment 3.5% of $135,000  = $4,725

Max Loan amount is 96.5% of $135,000 = 130,275*(base loan before PMI)

  Eligible Improvements:

  • Modernization and improvements to the homes function (New Kitch203K Renovation Loan Atlanta GA Joe Trovato Rehab first flooren /Bath, Appliances / HVAC, water heater)

Great information Joe. Not all lenders do the 203k loan, so it's good to have you as a resource.
