There are "renovation loans like the 203k". The FHA 203k isn't always the best choice for the buyer. Many times the alternatives have better terms or better rates as they are intended for people who have better credit.
Even if all other things are equal there is no private mortgage insurance (PMI) which saves 0.85% on the initial down payment and many hundreds each month. Yes, I'm afraid you have to have very good credit for the alternative loans but the cost is well worth the effort. This would be the Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation Mortgage.
It is always a good idea to look at all your options because the obvious solution may not be the best solution. Not all lenders offer all these different products.
What else is on the horizon? How about the High Balance Renovation Loan product up to $3MM loan amount? This is now available as of today. If you are looking for a home in a high end area you now have a product to help finance the renovation and make the purchase or refinance up to $3,000,000 loan amount. This is fantastic. Call for more information.
I had to laugh when a client called today and asked if we had anything for his $1.5MM project. Yes, when we say up to $3 Million in loan amount that would include a whole lot of homes from $625,500 to $3 Million and everything in between.
We have fourteen offices in CA covering both CA states, NorCAL and SoCAL where we can cover the entire state.
