We are seeing more of these every day;
The Lenders are getting more creative trying to help Buyers as well as Sellers:
FHA has a 203K loan which will piggy back the money for repairs and delay the payment for up to 6 months while the repairs are being made.
Fannie Mae has Homepath Renovation which will piggy-back up to $35,000 for repairs.
I suggest that YOU talk to some Lenders and have the information in place in advance. Your LISTING AGENT should help you on this.
Good luck and may God bless
