I sell a lot of property around this listing on Hudson and the unit has been in rough condition for quite some time. While you may be able to do a 203k loan, the owners may prefer cash offers as I believe it is a short-sale. You will need to be very savvy to get this property up to speed and it will likely sell above the list price.
I'm currently selling two properties around the corner at Las Palmas Ave and Lexington Ave. If you need assistance with this home or others in the area I'm happy to help.

There is no damage too extensive or structural damage that would stop you from buying that property with the FHA 203k loan because that is the main purpose of that loan...as long as you are buying it owner occupied with a minimum of 3.5% down payment. It can be done, believe it.
If you are not buying it owner occupied then there there is one conventional alternative at $15k max and several hard money alternatives.
The damage is too extensive for a 203k construction loan.
Work with a local RealtorÂ® that can help you out personally.
It is a short sale.
And not a bad deal. Everything else in the neighborhood is going for $399k and up.
Seen the pictures and this is a hard closing.
The uninhabitable unit seems raw and by the looks of it you might need a contractors opinion and check out the permits at the city hall as well.
Best bet is to work with a RealtorÂ® to see the property in person and see what can be done to make this happen.

Also in the condition the property is in it may not be insurable which would eliminate the vast majority of lenders..
There is an alternative conventional route but is limited to $15k in repairs.
Then there are hard money rehab loans designed for investors to fix & flip.
Any financing / loan questions feel free to contact me.
You need a good buyer agent on something like this if you haven't started working with one, I recommend you start interviewing them right away. If the listing says..all cash..that means they only want cash offers. I would caution you about considering a property like this..unless..you are a contractor, and can afford to sink money into somthing as risky sounding as this.
Feel free to email me if I can help you further. Contact information is on my website below.
If you are planning on getting an FHA loan to purchase a home, FHA has certain guidelines that the property must adhere to for them to loan on it. Therefore, a property like this which is not habitable and will need extensive repairs will have to be picked up by an all cash buyer. All risk will lie solely on the buyer. Including repair cost. However, there are many other types of properties that will qualify for an FHA loan which you can look into.
