FHA 203K Loan Information Nashua NH

Managing Real Estate Broker with Scott Gregory Group

FHA 203k is a mortgage alternative offered by the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for properties requiring renovation. The program allows home buyers to buy real estate and finance the cost of repairs. Traditional home loans require that properties be in livable condition. FHA 203k is a resourceful program for short sale or foreclosed properties and do not qualify for traditional mortgage programs to purchase them. The program is a crucial tool for expanding home ownership, revitalizing communities, and for making homes healthier for those who live in them. Nashua NH FHA 203k financing requirements on funds for renovations, repairs covered, and advice on buying Nashua NH properties with FHA 203k can be found below.

Funds For Renovations

The cumulative cost of eligible renovations is limited by the type of 203(k) loan and maximum FHA loan amount limits for the county. A minimum amount can also apply. All figures must be documented by quotes from professional contractors. The home must also appraise for the total amount of the home loan, which includes the purchase price of the residence plus the sum of the repairs, so the buyer is actually rolling in the cost of repairs into the loan. When the property and loan closes, the repair funds may be placed into an escrow account and paid out as work is completed. Repairs should be done by professional contractors and with needed permits. With approval, home owners may complete some of the repairs on their own. Inspections may be ordered by HUD to verify compliance. The home owner must intend to use the property as a primary residence. Multi-family and condos are allowed but with specific restrictions (properties used strictly for investment do not qualify in most cases). Below are more Nashua NH FHA 203k financing requirements.

FHA 203k Repairs Covered

Understanding repairs covered is important. FHA 203k mortgages can be used for a wide range of work. Major renovations include heating units, cooling units, insulation, roofs, windows, doors, and appliances. Work under some categories include strict requirements for quality and/or energy conservation. Some cosmetic-type repairs such as painting and flooring may also be allowed. This is only a fraction of the list. The full list may be requested from HUD or from a local FHA 203k approved loan provider. Always obtain a current list as the information may change.

Buying Nashua NH Properties With FHA 203k

Fully understand the program and options. Request a pre-approval in advance of making an offer on a residence that would require this type of mortgage. Local mortgage companies that offer general FHA mortgages are not necessarily approved to offer 203k loans. Terms and other factors typically vary from traditional FHA and conventional options. Speak to a knowledgeable advisor on this program and compare it to other programs available.
