Home You Are Purchasing Needs Repair- Ask About a 203K Loan

Are you purchasing a home that needs repairs?

You may be able to get a 203k Loan that will help you finance from $5,000 to $25,000 for repairs. These repairs can not be structural repairs. Once the loan is approved and closed, the contractor will have up to six months to complete the necessary repairs. Talk to your lender to see if the home you are thinking about purchasing will qualify for this loan.

Not all lenders are able to do a 203k loan.

Do you need a lender? I can recommend a few for you to interview.

Happy House Hunting!

Tips for Home Buyers When Purchasing a Home

Tips when in the process of purchasing a home.

  • Do not buy or lease a vehicle. When purchasing any large item or making a purchase on a credit card, your debt to income ratio may be affected. Lenders are very concerned about this debt to income ratio and the change may affect you qualifying for a loan.
  • Any money added to an account must be accounted for. Don’t add mattress money to an account.
  • Don’t start transferring funds around. All funds need to be accounted for.
  • Do not change jobs when in the middle of purchasing a home without putting a plan together with your lender.
  • Be in complete communication with your lender regarding your finances.
  • Do not order any furniture, appliances, etc. for your new home until you close escrow.
  • Don’t run your credit report during the process. This is a red flag to the lender. The lender will be wondering what other purchases you are planning on making.
  • If you want a copy of your credit report, just ask your lender.
  • Do not consolidate all your debt into one place during the home buying process.
  • Be sure to have all your important papers available before packing i.e. tax returns, bankruptcy papers, etc.

These are important tips to remember when getting ready to purchase a home.
