In 2009 the 203k loan program was out of this world. This time FHA has really stepped up to the plate. Every real estate professional should check the loan limits in your county or the counties you work in. In high cost areas you are back in the business with Jumbo loans that have rehab attached to them... if there is no rehab then FHA may still be your answer with the 203b. With loan limits in excess of $625,500 in 2015 "HIGH COST" areas and similar increases in all areas of the USA, this is the "Hottest Loan Product on the Market". FHA loans are easier to get, allow qualifying faster after a bankruptcy or foreclosure than conventional loans, and have higher loan limits in many cases than the conventional loans that may have dominated the market over the past few years, and the PMI has just been reduced substantially.
If you have a specific issue with a project you are putting together talk it out. We have had deals that were expected to fall apart when a client charged Christmas presents just before closing a loan and it threw their ratios out of wack... we were able to use the EEM (Energy Efficient Mortgage) features of the 203k to bring it back in line for closing on schedule. Please don't let a deal fall apart without giving us the opportunity to offer some suggestions that may keep that commission in your pocket. We're on your side.
