When it comes to renovation financing, we offer many different loan options for home buyers and homeowners. The Renovation Loans, FHA 203k streamline, & the Fannie Mae Homestyle all have different benefits and pitfalls to them. Not to mention you put the PowerSaver Grant option in there to further complicate things. The chart below compares some of the differences between the programs. The renovation loan process is pretty much the same regardless of which loan program you go with. Mortgage options can be complicated and when you throw repairs into the mix its even more confusing. Give us a call today and we’ll work with you to explore all your options.

One of the biggest myths out there is that you need a bunch of money to buy a house. That’s simply not true. There are a number of No and Low down payment options for home buyers. On top of that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to access many of those programs. During our next lunch and learn we will cover all the different options out there for buyers looking to minimize their down payment. Over the last couple years its been harder to get a lot of these types of offers accepted. However, with the market going back to a much more “normal” state it’s not nearly as hard as it was just a few short months ago. This is the perfect time for Realtors to reconnect with their past customers and get back out there looking. Come check out this lunch and learn and get a refresh course on low down payment options for buyers!
