The dollar amount? As long as the purchase price plus the rehab price is still less than 96.5% of the value of the property after the work is done, you are ok. For example, let's say the purchase price is \$150,000 and if you put \$50,000 of work into the home, the home would have an appraisal value of \$210,000 then you would be ok. If however the purchase price of the home is \$150,000 and you put \$50,000 of work into the home and the appraisal value was only \$190,000 then it wouldn't fly. You would need to get another bid or lower the amount of work being done to the home. Does that answer your question?

Does anyone know the limit of how much you can take out for the rehab loan?

It is the purchase price plus the the rehab, then take 3.5% from that. Any other questions, just let me know.

3.5% is the amount you put down on the total loan. Call Jaime Franz at A&N Mortgage. He is an expert on this type of loan. Please tell him I sent you.
