Yeah..203K loans have a number of contractor requirements that may discourage contractors from taking on the project.

The difference is obviously $$$, you avoid paying commissions. It becomes especially valuable in selling a property under $50K when you're paying a minimum commission regardless of how much the property sells for. The agent is less motivated to sell for more and will likely be aggressively pushing the price down, as the commissions are still the same. Minimum commissions are usually $5,000. Plus lots of red tape.
I have purchased my condo FSBO; it was advertised on a local Craigslist and I responded. I was familiar with the area, liked the complex, the low assessment, the garage parking etc. So we made a deal, I recycled an old contract from the condo sold years ago, located the title company, and bingo, it's transferred.
Really no big deal, anyone can do this. And just to think, the realtors charge a $5K minimum commissions for THAT? A robbery on a highway if you ask me.
The 203K lending guidelines are pretty much the same as they are for other FHA-insured loan programs. The only big difference is 203K allows for the cost of the renovation work to be included in the approved loan amount. Basically, you can take advantage of the 203K loan to purchase a home in Texas and get it renovated without the need for additional financing, with just a single loan.
I don't think VA allows 203K loans. The FHA 203K loans are handled through FHA approved lenders. The complete list of 203K Lenders that can help you with the loan approval and renovation work in Texas can be accessed here:
