FHA203k are fantastic loans that give buyers the opportunity to buy handyman properties which are usually discounted + have the opportunity to add in new appliances. The way to get an FHA203k is to find a mortgage broker or financial institution that writes those types of loans.

I have found 203k loans to be useful for first time homebuyers. In my opinion you can get more bang for your buck and imprint your vision upon a home. But it isn't right for every buyer.

For a detailed explanation and information ask your loan officer all your questions...

Whether you are a first time homebuyer or not, 203k loans work SLOWLY. You must be prepared for the funding process which works similar to construction financing. Be sure to work with a local lender who will provide you with excellent customer service and be accessible to you throughout.

Just the same as it would work for anyone else. Can you be more specific on what your issue or concern is?
