About the 203K Loan
In the current real estate market, homebuyers are interested in finding homes that are both move-in ready and affordable. Distressed properties have become increasingly popular due to their price, potential for customization and unique charm. It’s common for buyers to come across homes in desirable neighborhoods or larger properties that catch their eye, only to realize that they require some degree of repair or renovation to fit within their budget.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) 203K program enables borrowers to either purchase or refinance their home while including the costs of rehabilitation in the same transaction.
Here are some highlights of the FHA 203K loan program:
- There is a $5,000 minimum requirement for HUD repairs, but no maximum limit.
- Improvements to outdated homes. This includes renovating kitchens and bathrooms, correcting structural deficiencies, energy conservation improvement, and more.
- Additions and expansions.
We can help you have a good renovation experience from start to finish!
