Want to Move a House FHA 203k to the Rescue

You've probably seen the stories on your local newscast. Someone buys a house and moves kt to a new location. Firetrucks and police help lead the way as the house gets moved slowly through a town on a big trailer. Maybe there's someone moving stoplights and trimming trees along the way. It's a huge indertaking, and it makes for a great spectator sport.

If you're someone who's considered moving a house, or maybe you love a house but the locaiton isn't right, then you need to hear this story about a mortgage loan option that can help finance the actual moving of a home.

National FHA 203k expert Joe Daly shares a story of how he helped homeowners and buyers move homes bought at pennies on the dollar, and move them to a new lot with the FHA 203k. Houses bought by an expanding airport and sold to prospective buyers and former owners were moved by trucks to new parcels of land using the 203k loan.

With the 203k these buyers financed the home purchase, the moving of the building, the placement of the home and necessary work after that like landscaping and utilities. Imagine moving your home and financing all of the costs involved right into one monthly payment.
