Use the Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program, the FHA 203K Renovation Loan available in Alamosa County Colorado.
There is a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)- a department within HUD.
A home buyer or existing home owner can remodel or update their home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program. "Luxury items" like a hot tub and a swimming pool are not allowed by this FHA loan program.
You can repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, replace appliances and flooring, add wallpaper, or even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of your home because of more square footage). Many advantages exist with this government loan program but the biggest is the ability to have all of your acquisition or refinance loans together with your improvement loan in one low interest rate instead of two separate governments loans that are always of higher interest rates.
This FHA loan program is called a 203K loan, as defined by the Federal Housing Administration. For more information, please visit the FHA website: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/housing/sfh/203k/203kabou
Lenders have to be approved by HUD in order to do this loan program. 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. Using a broker can cause unnecessary delays in the process.
