Congratulations on deciding to take advantage of the unique & wonderful opportunities that are out there for 1st time home buyers. We have fantastic mortgage rates and the 1st time home buyers tax CREDIT that will be available through the first half of 2009.
What areas are you looking in? What type of homes are you most interested in?
The 203K program is an FHA product. When you are applying for your FHA mortgage, you will also be applying for your repair dollars. When applying, the dollars are for the projects that you are going to do to improve your home.
The dollars that you borrow on this will be part of your original loan application.
Not all lenders make FHA loans. And not all lenders that make FHA loans also make these 203K loans. Sometimes these loans can get difficult to administer. I would be happy to furnish you the names of several lenders that I deal with that are very adapt lenders. They know how to work with their clients to have these products best serve the client's situation.
I have a FREE information booklet prepared for 1st Time Home Buyers that will explain the home buying that I would be happy to send you with no obligation. You can call me at 440-487-2193 or e-mail me at email@example.com to request your FREE Home Buyers Guide.
Best of LUck!
