NJ-PA-DE-MD-VA Rehab loans – NJ FHA 203K

While most FHA lenders look down on repair escrows and wanting to hold back money on loans the easy way around this is the FHA 203K rehab loan. I am located in Mt. Laurel, NJ and recently my Realtors have been asking specifically for FHA 203K rehab loans because the banks are now requiring this as a condition to accepting an offer on bank owned properties. Why?

This is simple- most foreclosures have work that needs to be done in order to satisfy HUD/FHA minimum property requirements.  You cannot get around this with a typical FHA loan and the options are limited. FHA 203K loans allow you to do both minor and major repairs on the property. And get this- they allow you to go up to 110% of the appraised value of the property after rehabilitation.

Who thought that 100% + financing was dead?! I’ts not and FHA will allow you to do this with only 3.5% down on purchase.

If you are considering buying a foreclosure property or thinking you might like to rehab your current one contact me and I will be happy to run through with you your options using an FHA 203K loan.
