Good Morning!

There are different steps to take to find who and what works best for you.

First, find a good realtor to represent you. One that has experience in FHA loans and as is properties.

Some properties, due to condition may not qualify for any type of loan, including the FHA 203k.

Second, call local banks,ie: Wells Fargo, Bank of America, BB &T, and make an appointment with a loan officer. Interview several mortgage brokers especializing in FHA loans.

Third, read up online about the FHA 203k it is not as easy as you think. The monies are kept in escrow and the are giving to you as the stages of the repairs are completed. You have to get a professional and licensed contract to submit the repair proposal.

The best thing to do is to first get approved for a loan amount by a professional loan officer or broker, then work with a professional realtor who can qualify your needs and find you , your home.
Then you decide which loan works best for your needs.,

Hope this information helps. If you don't have a realtor you are already working with, please don't hesitate and give me a call.

Hi Crissy,
The best thing you can do is buy an apartment (prices are still low), so you can rent it out during the months you will not be in Miami (seasonal rent) which is ideal and will help you take care of your condo fees. . Call me and I will be glad to help you. Regards, Cristina
