Renovation Financing Options

We can tell you what lenders can do what they say and more importantly which ones can perform to get your loan closed faster.


So before you run out there and find a lender check them out. Be sure they have closed a 203k loan recently, ask them what their turn around time was on their last five or ten. Ask how many they have closed.

Consulting services

  • What you should expect from your consultant. If you order a consultation your FHA 203k consultant should assist you in putting together a scope of work and then provide a bid on that project. This way you have a reasonable expectation of the cost of your project. If they aren't doing this they aren't doing their job. The whole idea is provide you with a reasonable bid before you get a contractor's bid. 
  • You may need a "feasibility report". This has a distinct function. It is low cost and provides you with the tools you need to make an educated offer on the property. We provide these for buyers and sellers. Sellers should use this product so they can't get bushwhacked by a low-ball offer. They know up front what it will cost to bring the home to HUD's Minimum Property Standards. A potential buyer uses this report to see just what it will cost to bring this home to the MPS's (Minimum Property Standards) so they can make the correct offer. Need more detail, click here
  • Contractors, are you too busy to take time out to bid a project ? We can do that for you when you are too busy. We bid the project so when you visit the property for the first time you have a proposed bid in hand. You tune it up if needed and it took you about 1/10th the time it would have to actually bid the project. If you don't get the job, we don't get paid - FREE. Lets talk.
  • Cal-Vet also has a home improvement loan product.

FAQs

1) Can we get money up front for my 203k project? Yes and no, many lenders are now allowing you to get a 10% payment at close of escrow but not all lenders participate. You will need a W9 from the supplier and an invoice from that suppler for most lenders. For FHA projects you can get up to 50% for materials with a purchase contract from your supplier. That check will be made to the supplier.


2) Can we get money to pay for the cabinets when we order them? Yes, you can get a 50% deposit with your FHA 203k loan there is no such provision for HomeStyle loans though some lenders are allowing it, one is allowing up to 10-20% up front to get started.


3) How do I fire my contractor? This would always be a last resort. Not an easy thing to do and you should contact an attorney. For the short answer go to www.203k911.com
