RENOVATION LOANS can help you buy a home that is discounted because of its age or condition. FIX-IT MORTGAGE is a renovation loan that gives you the opportunity to add the costs of repairs or renovations into your mortgage. If you are looking at REO, foreclosures, fixer uppers, handyman specials or other discounted properties that may be listed as “cash only” or “as-is” this may be the right renovation loan solution for you. If you are looking at homes in older neighborhoods that may need updating, improvements or remodeling, there are multiple renovation loan solutions available.

Have you looked at homes that you may be able to afford but
they "Need Expensive Repairs or Updating"?
The FHA 203(k) is the foundation of renovation lending. Originally 203(k) was written in the early sixties and then updated in the nineties. 203(k) has been the most popular choice in the market for buyers choosing a renovation loan in order to finance both the purchase and renovation costs necessary to close as-is. The down payment on these loans can be as little as 3.5%. At closing, the seller is paid, and the renovation funds go into an escrow account that is set up in the homeowner's name to fund
the renovation costs through a
system of inspections and draw requests.
The Fannie Mae HomeStyle is the same concept as 203(k). With HomeStyle, a buyer can finance both the purchase and renovation costs necessary to close as-is. HomeStyle was originally written in the mid-nineties and was called the Home Improvement Mortgage Loan, HIML, later updated to HomeStyle. Some of the terms and conditions in HomeStyle are different than 203(k), but HomeStyle presents a similar unique opportunity to a homebuyer looking at property that is being sold as-is. The HomeStyle down payment can be as little as 3% for a first-time homebuyer. HomeStyle can also be used by an investor or second homebuyer.
