FHA 203k Loans for Fixer Upper Homes

[ 1 ] December 13, 2010 |

FHA has a program aimed at helping people with renovation projects.  This program, referred to as the 203k loan, is a great boost to potential buyers or existing home owners.

In the past people that wanted to buy a home in need of some general repairs or updating had to do one of two things.  They could negotiate with the seller to lower the price and then pay for the repairs after the purchase.  Or they could ask the seller to make the repairs in exchange for more money.  The FHA 203k is a better alternative to either of these scenarios.

The 203k program will grant people a loan to purchase a property and make improvements to it at the same time. The money that is necessary for the purchase is given to the seller and they go along on their merry way.  The money needed for the rehabilitation of the property is put into escrow while a licensed contractor performs the work.  Once the work is completed and passes inspection the funds are released to the contractor.

This is a great way for people to buy a home that is likely less than their budget for a home purchase and improve the home with modern touches.  New carpet, paint, modern appliances and roofing are some common examples of ways that people have incorporated this program.

These programs are offered with the same type of rates and terms as other FHA loans so that people are sure to get an affordable mortgage with a solid fixed rate.
