There is a Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with FHA 203K Mortgage Loans in Rockwall TX.
Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA(a department within HUD). This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien.
The loan program does not allow for “luxury items” which are defined as items like a swimming pool or hot tub, etc. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.
One of the biggest advantages to this government loan program is you have all of your acquisition or refinance loan with your improvement loan in one low interest rate, government guaranteed loan instead of two loans- including a first and a second lien loan (which is always at a higher interest rate).
The FHA loan program is called a 203K loan by the Federal Housing Administration. For more information, please visit the FHA website:
HUD must approve lenders before they can do this loan program. Due to the intricacies of the loan program, you must go with an experienced lender that offers in house underwriting instead of a mortgage broker so that you can avoid the long delays that brokered loans in this niche sometimes create.
There are two types of loan programs within FHA 203K Mortgage Loans in Rockwall TX 1. A streamline 203K loan. The dollar amount of improvements is generally lower for a streamline 203K loan, and there can not be any structural improvements on a 203K Streamline loan. But, basic cosmetics, etc. are allowed on a streamline 203K Rehab loan. The second type of 203K loan is called a Full 203K loan. The full 203K loan offers the ability for the home owner to renovate or rehab their property including structural improvements, like doing foundation work or adding another room, etc.
Now you can have the home of your dreams- so when looking for a home- you can envision new carpeting, paint, lighting, remodeled kitchen or bathrooms, etc. which may allow you much more flexibility in your home purchase or to remodel your existing home.
