There is a Special Government Rehab Program-Abilene TX FHA 203K Home Loans. 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" such as a hot tub or a swimming pool are not allowed with 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). 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. 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.
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.
