The purchase of a house that needs repair is often a catch-22 situation, because the bank won’t lend the money to buy the house until the repairs are complete, and the repairs can’t be done until the house has been purchased. An FHA 203K Renovation Loan or the Fannie Mae Home-Style Renovation Loan are options used to fix-up, repair, or renovate homes. The Renovation Loan allows access to a government-backed loan program for needed funds and Home-Style Conventional renovation program is done by private investors and follows conventional guidelines. Think of these as a one-time close construction loans. At closing, the seller receives their money, and the rest is put into escrow for the buyer to use for rehabbing the property. Each program has its respective advantages, and either could be right for you.
