WHY IT’S A BRILLIANT WAY TO PURCHASE (OR SELL) A FIXER-UPPER

If the offer is presented properly to the seller, it could be the strongest financial offer in competing offer situations.

STEPS TO PURCHASING A PROPERTY USING THE 203k LOAN
Any repairs/improvements/modifications/modernizations that add value to and/or improve the property are acceptable for an FHA 203k Loan.
(There are no required steps or any specific order that items must be completed. HOWEVER, to ensure a smooth real estate purchase, these are the recommended steps to purchasing/refinancing a home using an FHA 203k Loan:)
The Home Buyer/Borrower selects an FHA-approved 203k lender and real estate agent knowledgeable with the FHA 203k Loan and then applies for the loan. (You can find many online.)
Let the lender and real estate agent know you will be using a certified 203k contractor to make the repairs and/or improvements before filling out the loan application.
The lender is responsible for determining that the customer’s selected contractor is able to do the work and complete the 203k project in a timely and workmanlike manner, in accordance with HUD’s guidelines, by verifying the contractor’s license, insurance credentials and work experience, as well as the contractor's understanding of and competency with the 203k program.
