FHA-Backed 203(k) Rehab Loans Can Make All The Difference.

FHA rehab what? You mean there are still loans available to help fix up a house? S-WEET!Here is the scoop: The FHA-backed 203(k) rehab loan is an increasingly popular option in today’s market because so many available properties, especially foreclosures, are in need of repair. And let me tell you, I have been in plenty of them. The bones may be good but boy do they need some lovin’. A streamlined 203(k) provides money to pay for improvements such as a new roof, appliances, furnace, energy-efficient windows, and cosmetic improvements like carpet, paint, and remodeled kitchens and baths. The maximum loan available is $35,000. The buyer must put down 3.5 percent of the acquisition. At closing, the seller is paid and the remaining money goes into an escrow account to pay for repairs. A licensed contractor must complete the work within six months. Some lenders allow the borrower to do minor cosmetic work like painting themselves.
