Specializing in Texas Renovation Mortgages
The Perfect Loan for the Almost Perfect Home:
Home Buyers: Sometimes home buyers find a house in a perfect neighborhood, but needs some personalized improvements. They love the home’s layout, the school district, the neighborhood amenities and more, but the appliances may need updating, the heating and cooling systems may need modernizing, the backyard may be in need of an outdoor kitchen, and the kids just might like to have an in-ground pool. Financing this “almost perfect” home with a traditional mortgage would leave the home buyers on their own for any updates, repairs or improvements, but a renovation mortgage builds the cost of the renovations into the total loan amount and one closing!
Home Owners: This also a great option for clients that are considering a refinance and / or renovation. Improve instead of move, and reap the benefits of a refinance with your newly improved home with one closing!
Loan Programs available: I will recommend either FNMA HomeStyle, FHA 203(k), or 203(k) Streamline depending on many factors to include: 1) Clients’ personal circumstances 2) Plans for improvement of the property 3) Big picture goal of both
The steps and process are easy, so let’s get started!
