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

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%.
