FHA 203k Loans
The FHA 203k is a renovation loan program that provides funds for both the purchase and renovation of a home. There are two types of an FHA 203k loan. The first is normal 203k, which is given for properties that need structural repairs such as a new roof or a room addition. The second is the streamlined203k, which is given for non-structural repairs such as painting and new appliances. The minimum Loan Amount is $5000.
Fannie Mae HomeStyle
The HomeStyle® Renovation mortgage permits borrowers to include financing for home improvements in a purchase or re-finance transaction of an existing home. HomeStyle Renovation provides a convenient way for borrowers to make renovations, repairs, or improvements totaling up to 50 percent of the as-completed appraised value of the property with a first mortgage, rather than a second mortgage, home equity line of credit, or other, more costly financing method. Eligible borrowers include individual home buyers, investors, nonprofit organizations, and local government agencies.
