Whether you’re buying a home or your current home needs a makeover, making improvements just got easier. Our renovation loan programs can help you get those much-needed repairs or those nice to have home improvements by financing the costs into your mortgage for one monthly payment. These programs are also a great way to handle any appraiser required repairs. We have renovation loan options for all the major loan programs: Conventional, FHA, and VA.
The basic process is fairly straight forward. The first step is to identify a property and negotiate a acceptable contract. Next you will need to get a bid from a licensed contractor for any work you want to do on the home. We then order an appraisal. The appraisal is done as completed, meaning the appraiser gives us a value based on the completed project. When the appraisal comes back we button up anything else that needs to happen underwriting wise and then close on the loan. At closing the seller get’s their money and ownership of the property also changes hands. The contractor can now go in and get going on the work. Once all the work is done we reinspect the property, verify everything is done, and then pay the contractor out of the loan proceeds. It’s really that simple.
