Stuck wishing for the right home?
If you have an FHA loan, buying a foreclosure home can be difficult. Many foreclosure homes are not in the condition FHA would approve. So how do you get into a foreclosure home with FHA financing? It can be tricky but there are ways to do it! FHA has a program they offer call the FHA 203k rehab loan. Although this product has been around for years, not many purchasers know about it or use it when they are looking at finding the right home.
The word "rehab" probably scares most first time home buyers away to begin with! The good news is, the home doesn't have to be in horrible shape to use this loan! If you find a home you really love but the carpeting and paint need to be done-talk to your mortgage lender because this may be an option for you!
The rehab loan allows purchasers to finance many of the improvements needed on a home. There is always a limit to what can be done, this loan can be time consuming and you should work with someone who is familiar with it's process. It may help you get the home you have been dreaming of as well! Find more information at the HUD website http://www.hud.gov/buying/loans.cfm
