I am a RENOVATION LOAN EXPERT... and I say unto you...
DON"T GET A RENOVATION LOAN!
Why? for something with a small repair, I can issue you a "Repair Escrow" loan, on ANY loan. Conventional, VA, FHA, USDA, you name it... You can get this house with the best rate and terms possible and have money to fix that roof after you settle. :)
Contact me and I will gladly tell you about it! :)
