If you would like to make repairs or upgrades to your home, you will need to find a way to finance your project.
At Front Range Mortgage, we want it to be easy and convenient as possible for you to finance improvements to your home. As such, we offer multiple types of home renovation loans for you to choose from, with our most popular products being FHA 203(k) loans and conventional rehab loans.
An FHA 203(k) loan is a government-insured lending product which you can use for purchase or refinance of an older home in need of repairs. You may only use this type of renovation loan to make necessary improvements. You cannot, for example, put in a swimming pool using this type of financing.
One unique benefit of an FHA 203(k) loan is that you can use it not only to repair a home, but also to live elsewhere for a six month period as you are making those repairs. This means that if a home is not initially liveable when you buy it, you will have somewhere to stay while you work toward making it serviceable as a residence.
If your repairs end up being pricier than your estimates predicted, you also can take advantage of the contingency reserve included with the FHA 203(k) loan to cover those extra costs.
While the government-backed FHA 203(k) loan is a specific type of loan, conventional rehab loans encompass a variety of lending products.
Usually, you will need to furnish a higher down payment to obtain a conventional rehab loan, and you also might need a higher credit score to qualify.
But in other respects, you may find that a conventional rehab loan is a more flexible option than an FHA 203(k) loan since there is a broader spectrum of products available for different needs. One example of a conventional rehab loan you can apply for is a HomeStyle Renovation Loan.
Unlike an FHA 203(k) loan, a HomeStyle Renovation Loan can be used for pretty much any type of home improvement. You can even put in a swimming pool or make another luxury renovation.
During your consultation, we can help you figure out which type of renovation loan is right for you. As a local company which is Colorado Local, Colorado Only, Colorado Proud, we can spend more time with you than a big bank. We won’t rest until we have found the ideal match for your financing needs.
