Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program within Carbondale Colorado.
Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). Thanks to this special FHA loan program, a buyer or home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their new or existing home without the higher cost of a second mortgage.
"Luxury items" like a hot tub and a swimming pool are not allowed by this FHA loan program. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage).
The biggest advantage with this government loan program is that instead of having two higher interest loans, you can combine your primary mortgage and your rehab costs into one low government loan and interest rate. A 203K Loan is the name of this FHA loan program as defined by the Federal Housing Administration.

Lenders have to be approved by HUD in order to do this loan program. To avoid delays, it is essential that you go with a lender that can offer in house underwriting and expertise instead of using a mortgage broker due to the intricacies of the loan program. There are two types of loan programs that are part of the 203K Renovation Loan program for Carbondale Colorado.
The first is what is called a streamline 203K loan. When using a 203K Streamline loan, there can't be any structural improvements and the dollar amount is generally lower (less than $35,000) for a 203K streamline loan. Only basic cosmetic repairs are allowed with a Streamline 203K loan. These are items such as painting, plumbing, electrical, and flooring. A Full 203K loan is the second type of a 203K loan.
A full 203K loan offers structural improvements like adding another room or doing foundation work as well as the ability for the home owner to rehab or renovate their current property. Envision new carpeting, paint, a remodeled kitchen or bathrooms and lighting when looking for your new home. Now you can have the home of your dreams which will allow you much more flexibility in remodeling or in your home purchase.
