What You Need To Know About 203K Renovation Mortgages
- Which repairs qualify? - A 203k Renovation Mortgage is for properties in need of structural repairs such as a room addition. A Streamlined 203k Renovation Loan is for non-structural repairs such as painting and new appliances. The FHA 203k also covers: patios, bathroom, decks and kitchen remodels, plumbing, flooring, new siding, additions and expansion to the home such as a second story, and heating and air conditioning systems. Need a new well and septic, perfectly fine. The program does not cover so-called “luxury” improvements.
- How much money can you get? - The amount of money you may borrow under an FHA 203k varies depending on the type of loan you get (regular vs. streamlined). Regular FHA 203k Loans allow an amount that is the lesser of these two amounts: 1) As-is value of the property plus repair costs, or 2) 110 percent of the after improved estimated value of the property including planned repairs.
Streamlined 203K Loans allow a loan of the purchase price of the home plus up to $35,000. The as-is value of the property or the estimated value of the property post-repair will be determined by an appraisal. The typical down-payment is as low as 3.5 percent, but the money can come from a family member, employer or charitable organization
- What kinds of properties qualify? - One- to four-family homes that have been completed for at least a year; homes that have been torn down (Some of existing foundation must be in place); a transportable home that can be moved to a new location.
