What is a HomeStyle Renovation Loan?
A HomeStyle loan is a long-term renovation loan backed by Fannie Mae and available to owner-occupied homeowners as well as small buy-and-hold investors. ...HomeStyle loans combine the purchase and rehab of property together as a single loan. HomeStyle Renovation (HSR) mortgages are issued by Fannie Mae-approved lenders.
What Is a 203k Improvement Loan?
A 203k improvement loan is a mortgage option guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Compared to other types of loans, FHA 203k is easier to get approved and less risky for lenders.
With 203k, you can borrow money using only one loan. It’s a great option if you’re interested in buying a property that has lots of potential but needs improvements. You can use the money to make the purchase and perform the necessary repairs to make the property more suitable for living. For more information, do not hesitate to text or email us!
Based on traditional conventional mortgage underwriting guidelines, a property
in need of minor or major repairs that impact the livability of the home are not eligible for financing.
The FHA 203k and other renovation loan programs provide for additional funding to fix this problem,
which will obviously benefit listing agents who need to reach a broader buyer market.
What is the Energy Efficient Mortgage Program?
The Energy Efficient Mortgage Loan program helps current or potential homeowners significantly lower their monthly utility bills by enabling them to incorporate the cost of adding energy efficient improvements into their new home or existing housing. This FHA program eliminates the need for homeowners who are interested in making their home more energy efficient to take out an additional mortgage loan to cover the cost of the improvements they intend to make to their property. The program is available as part of a FHA insured home purchase or by refinancing your current mortgage loan.
It is our government's goal to make energy efficiency and conservation a way of life. The FHA Energy Efficient Mortgage Loan program contributes to these efforts by providing better housing and creating a way for homeowners to make valuable improvements to their homes at a relatively low cost.
