  1. What does a typical 203k project look like? Here are a few that we saw in the past year... 

     San Jose. Needed a new roof, heating system was well beyond it's useful life. Vegitation growing all over the home... clinging vines, dated kitchen and bathrooms. Seller ignored repairs for years thus a lower than typical sales price would be in order.

    Duplex northease of Davis. Lack of typical maintenace over a long period of time caused damage to wood members that might have been avoided with normal owner preventive mainteance. Seller should eat the loss here as this never should have gotten this bad.

    Typical 203k project 3SFR in Vallejo. This cute home just need some updating and weatherization.

    Typical 203k project 4SFR in SF had an illegal lower level unit. Someone convered the basement to a second living area but forgot to obtain permits and then failed to use common construction methods. Seller should carry the brunt of the cost in a lower sales price. 

    Pretty much anything is a typical FHA 203k renovation potenial property. If you are trying to sell a home with a bad roof or a marginal roof and it leaks just after the home is sold, you will likely get sued... not if you had suggested a 203k to replace that faulty roof as it would be a warrantee item.

  2. HUD/FHA felt there was too much confusion with the name Streamline k versus the FHA Streamlined Refi and it was a bit confusing to those who hadn't heard of the 203k. Why hadn't they heard of the 203k is beyond me. It has been around since 1961 and is going stronger than ever.

    Sreamline k loans now and hereafter referred to as "Limited 203k" loans always provided 50% of the materials cost up front to the contractor unless you were dealing with a lender like Wells Fargo that only allowed 35% or Prospect Mortgage at 40%. Most other lenders provided the full 50% per the guideline.

    The new rule as it is proposed for

    Standard 203(k) transactions, Mortgagees may disburse the following at closing:

    • permit fees (the permit must be obtained before work commences);
    • prepaid architectural or engineering fees;
    • prepaid Consultant fees; [reimbursed to the borrower]
    • materials costs for items, prepaid by the Borrower in cash or by the contractor, where a contract is established with the supplier and an order is placed with the manufacturer for delivery at a later date; and
    • up to 50 percent of materials costs for items, not yet paid for by the borrower or contractor, where a contract is established with the supplier and an order is placed with the manufacturer for delivery at a later date
    • For any Disbursements paid to the contractor, the Mortgagee must hold back 10 percent of the draw request in the Contingency Reserve.
    This is actually a pretty big thing. This will allow us to get reimbursed for materials... materials at 50% of their cost at the close of escrow. By paying that directly to the supplier with proper 1099 form and invoice copy for materials they can get the money at close of escrow. This should speed things up considerably for getting the big ticket items deposits paid for up front at the closing. 
    While the permits and some of the other fees has been the case for yers the 50% of some of the materials costs paid at close is going to help allow more contractors the flexibility to do more 203k projects.

  4. What is your consultation fee?
    That is nearly always a question that gets asked. Well, it is on our order form to make it easy for you to fill out your GFE - Good Faith Estimate of fees and charges. We have attempted to make it so easy and efficient. If you are a lender placing the order and you have ordered before with the same company, you need not fill out all the company information each time, your name and phone number are sufficient. Save yourself some time. 
    It is however a great asset to be able to copy and paste the informaton on the order blank. It is imporant to know the fee your client will be paying for full disclosure purposes but we will need to know the construction budget. Since our fee is based on the amount of the construction it is important to have that little piece of information so we can quote you a cost.
    You should also know that there is no protocol for the consutant report and many consultants do the bare minimum for their fee and then we have some, like us, that go way overboard to spoil our clients. We always attempt to "deliver more than you expect". 
    This week one client stated in an email "It really is very helpful having you as our consultant Mike. Like you said the first day, we will need you in our corner and it does feel like that indeed. So thank you." It is our intention to provide our clients with the best possible product and service they can get. Some get it and some never will. Happily most get that what we do is way beyond what is required and we do it for the same price as those who don't.

  5. When this project was completed within budget I thought nothing  of it that the client asked if they could use the contingency to paint the exterior of the home. To myA black house?
    surprise as I was traveling out to see the finished job I was listing to a real estate talk show where they had just stated "the worst color you could paint your house to get it sold fast is "BLACK". Then I pull up and see this charcoal black house... too much and too funny. 

    This morning on my walk I saw someone in my neighborhood had painted their garage door, trim and gutters "BLACK" too much. What do you think?

  8. Does the "termination date" column in the HUD inspector lookup results means the inspector is no longer certified?

    Yes, exactly that simple. It might be for not answering his phone when HUD calls to verify your phone number or it might be for some other more serious reason.
