HomeStyle Renovation Loans1
You can use a HomeStyle renovation loan to cover costs of repairs, remodels, renovations or energy-efficient improvements on a primary residence, a second home or an investment property. There are no required improvements or restrictions on the types of repairs allowed or a minimum dollar amount for the repairs. However, repairs or improvements must be permanently affixed to the real property, add value to the property, and be completed by a licensed contractor.
Streamline FHA 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage1
In addition to funding your new home, an FHA Limited 203(k) can provide up to $35,000 (including a contingency reserve) in additional funds to help make a few non-structural repairs or renovations such as updating a kitchen or bathroom, adding new flooring, purchasing new appliances, or repairing the roof.
Standard FHA 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage1
If your potential dream home needs more than $35,000 in renovations or the repairs are structural, the Standard FHA 203(k) might be the right solution. This program removes the restrictions of the limited option to allow for major home remodeling. A Standard FHA 203(k) can provide additional funds* to help with eligible repairs including moving or removing walls, minor pool repairs, and landscaping.
