Renae,

I hope this helps some....

Also, there are state and county grants or rebates from the electric companies themselves. One just needs to do their homework. And yes, you can do conventional loans... but I prefer FHA or VA because FHA is easier to qualify for overall... credit scores, even 680 with 5% down are more expensive.. or harder to get MI.

thanks,
Jeff

@Camille,

Yes, you can do many types of repairs with a 203-k loan... but if you just want to do energy efficient improvements and nothing else? EEM mortgages will be cheaper and quicker... even if you were to do a 203k streamline. The interest rates don't change at all.... just food for thought,.

thanks,
jeff
