Mortgages for Home Renovations.

August 5th, 2018 10:52 PM by Sam Kader

Do you know that you have options to upgrade your kitchen or install new roof or buy a fixer upper and do it right from the start? 

FNMA HomeStyle Renovation is available for you: 
  1. Primary residence with at least 620 credit score. 
  2. 5% down payment
  3. A certified contractor must prepare and submit a cost estimate and details of the work to be done. 
  4. One loan only. You don't have to take out a loan for the mortgage and then another loan for home repairs. 
  5. Funds for repairs goes into a separate escrow account to pay contractor directly. 
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a home-renovation loan called a 203(k): Limited  
  1. Primary residence only with at least 550 credit score. 
  2. 3.5% down payment
  3.  Limited 203(k) for up to $35,000 in cosmetic repairs. 
  4. The lender holds the funds with escrow and the lender pays contractor directly ensuring that everything is done correctly. 
Cash-out refinancing allows homeowners to refinance their mortgage. The new mortgage will be higher than the first one and the homeowner gets the difference in cash.  The higher the equity on the house, the lower the interest will be. 

Depending on your credit score and loan eligibility, I will work with you in determining which option will suit you better.
