FHA’s Streamlined 203 Mortgage Program

I wanted to make sure you knew about a wonderful loan  program that lets homebuyers finance up to an additional $35,000 into their  mortgage to improve or upgrade their home before move-in. FHA’s Streamlined  203(k) Loan Program helps homebuyers tap into cash to pay for property repairs  or improvements, like those identified by a home inspector or FHA appraiser.
Here are some of the eligible repairs and improvements for  the 203(k) loan program:

  • Repair or replacement of roofs, downspouts, and gutters
  • Repair, replacement, or upgrade of existing HVAC systems
  • Repair or replacement of flooring
  • Minor remodeling (i.e. kitchen) not involving structural repairs
  • Painting of the interior and exterior
  • Weatherization, including storm windows and doors, insulation, weather stripping, etc
  • Purchase and installation of appliances, including washers and dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers, microwave ovens, and free-standing ranges
  • Accessibility improvements for people with disabilities
  • Repair, replace, or add exterior decks, patios, or porches
  • Basement finishing and remodeling not involving structural repairs
  • Window and door replacements and exterior wall re-siding
  • Septic system or well repair or replacement
  • Lead-based paint stabilization or abatement of lead-based paint hazards (engineer’s report required upon completion)

   FHA 203(k) loans can be used for purchasing a primary  residence or refinancing the rate and term. Cash-out refinances are not  allowed.
