I am a local loan officer for a division of Wells Fargo and have closed many 203k loans. They are becoming more and more popular especially since there are so many bank owned properties on the market right now. Feel free to give me a call and I can get some numbers together for you. I can be reached at 215-654-5904..
I have just finished a very successful 203 loan in Elkins Park with Bank of America and I would highly recommend him as this is all he does. He has a great construction manager to make the transaction extremely smooth. You can reach me at 215-917-0414.
You will also want to make sure your loan officer is expereinced in 203k loans as well as your buyer broker. Make sure teh process is explained to you, you understand it and the repair process is well documented. Also please note the loan process is lengthy, longer than a regular fha loan so you should allow a good 60 days to close. If you dont find anyone through your post, let me know and i can check my referral network in your area. Good luck with your purchase.
