Helping More Home Buyers Realize Their Dream: Becoming a Top FHA 203k Lender

Posted by Dan Moyle on Thu, Jun 23, 2016

Did you know there's an option for financing your home purchase that allows you to borrow money to renovate?

That you can create your dream home with one mortgage, one interest rate, and one down payment?

And here's the best part of all: You're learning about this dream home mortgage from one of the top lenders in the country for it! That's right ... we're here to brag on our branches and our team just a moment.

First - it's time to explain this mortgage loan option for remodeling a dream home. It's called the FHA 203k. This is a low-down-payment option, so it's great for starter homes and first time home buyers. When you find a house that has potential but needs some work, your first thought may be to walk away, or to buy it and put "sweat equity" into it on the weekends and in the evenings, doing the work yourself. While that's great, the 203k loan helps you finance the work through a professional, so you're not the one swinging the hammer!
