Paul Cawthorne is 203(k) Renovation Lending Certified

Paul is certified in 203(k) Renovation Lending, a program particularly well suited for buyers of fixer-uppers and REOs in need of repair. Homebuyers can finance both the purchase and future repairs on their new home with one loan.

The Renovation Loan offers some great features. The amount of money you are permitted to borrow for the purchase and renovations is based on the increased value of your home after improvements are made1. Also, because renovation costs are spread throughout the entire term of the loan, monthly payments are often lower than other financing options. With the loan, there is also no need to delay improvements. You can start in immediately after closing. Another great feature is the loan's simplicity - one application, one set of fees and closing costs, one closing to attend and one payment each month. The interest on the cost of your improvements, included in your mortgage, may be tax deductible2 as well.

Paul Cawthorne values your business and will provide you with the best professional service and mortgage solutions that make most sense for you and your unique financial situation and real estate goals.

Please contact Paul by phone, email or filling out the pre-approval form on the right to get more information about our Renovation Loan, or any other mortgage financing solution. I look forward to working with you!

Halder L. Lancaster, CA
“We were very impressed with our Loan Officer, Paul Cawthorne. As first time homebuyers he made the process much easier than we had anticipated. Paul was always just a phone call or an email away. He answered questions that we didn't even know to ask. He was very thorough and explained the entire process completely, step by step to our understanding. He made us feel like a priority (as if we were the only client/concern) and not just a number. We would/will refer him to our family, friends and those we know seeking a loan.”
Eugene S. Sherman Oaks, CA
“We changed lenders during escrow so it was imperative to move quickly on the loan to make sure there were no delays. Paul and his team got the loan approved on-time and did a great job keeping me up to date throughout the process.”
Daniel F. Dana Point, CA
“Paul was able to come through on multiple occasions and overcame setbacks (outside of his control) to still make a pretty aggressive closing date. He also spent a lot of time explaining the whole process to me along the way; his communication was stellar!! Being a first time homebuyer myself, I truly appreciated his knack for explaining the loan process in a relatable manner.”

“Paul went above and beyond the call of duty in communicating closely with the borrowers and all the other involved parties, and did his utmost to make sure this deal closed smoothly. He 's always a very reliable and professional partner to work with.”
Nicole A. Lancaster, CA
“Paul Cawthorne is an exceptional Loan Officer. He made himself available to me at all hours, which is significant given he is located in a different city. He gave me honest feedback and did everything in his power to work with me through challenges. He also has an excellent demeanor and provides stellar customer service, which are very rare attributes nowadays. I do not believe I could've found a better person to work with through this exciting and nerve-wrecking time of purchasing a home, a short-sale one at that. He will always be the first person I think of when someone needs a mortgage loan referral. Thanks for being you, Paul!”
Doug W. Glendale, CA
