The Low down on

FHA 203(k) Loans

An FHA 203(k) loan – also known as a mortgage rehab loan, renovation loan, or Section 203(k) loan, can be used to fund both a home’s purchase and renovations under a single mortgage. It allows home buyers who are considering purchasing a fixer-upper that requires multiple repairs and significant rehabilitation efforts to roll the cost of both the property and these projects into one loan. current homeowners can also apply for this loan and use it to refinance their property and fund the costs of an upcoming renovation through a single mortgage as well.

How does the FHA 203(k) Loan Work?

An FHA 203(k) loan is backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Home buyers or homeowners can borrow sufficient funds to address both the cost of any given property and subsequent repairs. Funds obtained through an FHA 203(k) loan, which can take the form of a 15- or a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, or adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), can be applied to expenses associated with both materials and labor as well. These mortgages are insured by the government, so a 203(k) loan may come with more flexible qualification terms and requirements than a conventional home loan.

This loan makes it possible to purchase or refinance a home that needs significant care and improvement. The expenses associated with these efforts are added to the total that you elect to borrow and can be paid off over a period of years as you pay off the monthly premiums associated with your mortgage as well. This is a cost-effective way to pay for many home improvements. Your income, credit history, credit score, and debt-to-income ratio will be needed in order to qualify. Work covered under an FHA 203(k) loan must start within 30 days of closing, and projects must be completed within a maximum of 6 months’ time as well.
