Make Your Current Home Your Dream Home Imagine buying your first home and watching your family outgrow it. You've made a lot of memories here and the thought of leaving makes you sad. Could there be a way for you to stay? There is and it's called the FHA 203(k) home improvement loan. With this loan you can refinance your current mortgage and get the extra funds you need to pay for repairs, upgrades and renovations all in one home loan. You can add bedrooms or bathrooms, expand a kitchen or dining room or even add a second story to the home.
Homeowners looking to remodel have a few options for financing the work. Most of the options, though, are more difficult to get in the current housing market. Home equity loans are rare because few homeowners have enough (if any) equity to pay for anything more than an estimate on the home improvements. But there is one financing option out there for home improvements. It's the 203k renovation loan from FHA.
