How are you? Thank you for your inquiry. 203K is a renovation FHA loan that you can use to purchase a somewhat out of shape home and have a licensed and participating contractor to do the work for you as part of the mortgage package. And yes, you could use this type of loan on a foreclosure property if needed. "AS IS" on a property listing only means the bank is not fixing anything and selling in whatever the current condition of the property is.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at Phong.Lam@c21ag.com or call me at (267) 918-1880 and I'll be more than happy to explain everything in details for you.
Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day!
Hope that helps!

A 203k loan can be used to finance the purchase of a property and the cost of construction to bring the property into liveable condition or better. A 203k loan can be used to pirchase a foreclosure and is often necessary to get financing as most lenders will not finance a house that has health or safety hazards.
A 203k loan can be used to finance everything except swimnming pools or major structural damage
You can get more information at my website see below and click on the link at the bottom of the page).
A 203k loan carries a slightly higher rate than a regular FHA 203B loan and the closing costs can be approx $1,000 to $2,000 higher for inspection fees, title bring downs and consultant fees as wellas a mandatory supplemental origination fee. These are all worked into the cost of the loan and the required downpayment for the buyer is still the minimum 3.5%.
Please call me if you have any other questions.
