A home buyer called me the other day to ask a great question about buying a foreclosed home and taking care of some of the work on it. Have you seen these vacant houses? Some of them need a lot of love. This house in particular had a driveway issue that was affecting the foundation of the house. Of course I immediately thought of the Full FHA 203k. This home improvement loan must be used when the work involves the structure of the house. The caller asked if the 203k would pay for a new driveway. Since I didn't have the answer at the top of my mind, I leaned on our expert.
