FHA 203(k) Rehab Loans
REHAB LOANS with FHA Financing
Purchase a home and finance repairs, renovations, and energy efficient improvements all into one FHA home loan.
You have probably come across homes that need repairs, new roofs, paint, carpet, appliances and much, much more. It was just too much work for you to take on as you have a limited amount of cash and can’t afford to purchase the home and then pay the costs of remodeling.
The FHA Streamline (k), FHA 203(k) and Energy Efficient Mortgage are the loan programs designed to help finance repairs and improvements into your new FHA purchase loan. Buy the home at the current value, close escrow and then remodel the home before you move in. One loan does it all with no need for additional construction financing.
Below are a few highlights of each of these loan programs and the benefits they provide.
