Hi -

You might want to consider an FHA 203k loan. That type of loan may allow you to buy a home and make repairs and improvements and include it in the loan. Talk to your lender right away.

Good luck!

Simple answer is yes, depending on what renovations and type of loan. The home must then appraise for the amount of loan including renovations and borrower must qualify for the total amount..

In addition to the 203k loan for larger renovation projects there are some other programs available for a smaller project such as, installing central air, new windows or siding a home that can be done quickly after the closing. Give me a call and I will put you in touch with a local lender that can wrap such a loan.

Yes, you can do a 203K loan. Give me call and I'd be happy to explain the process and put you in touch with a lender I use that can make the process as smooth as possible.

On normal loans the answer is no. Unless you get a type of rehab loan that would allow you to get extra funds to fix up the home. The one most people use is called a 203k loan. It's part of the FHA program. Many lenders don't offer the program and even fewer loan officers truly understand how to do them. Most lenders designate just a few loan officers within the bank that can close those loans for you. Hope this was helpful and please let me know if you have follow up questions.
