Many of the Houston, Austin, San Antonio Homes for sale have “deferred maintenance items” – especially if the seller is a Bank or the property is being offered through a Short Sale. Because of this, the Buyers are being asked to purchase the hope with repairs that need to be done immediately. In a traditional setting, this could make getting a mortgage loan a challenge!
Because of the number of fairly cheap Houston, Austin, San Antonio homes for sale that are previous foreclosures, or homes that could be “the one” with updating and a little bit of personal taste, we recommend that clients consider a re-rehabilitation loan.
FHA offers the FHA 203K loan for re-rehabilitation. The FHA 203K allows a Houston, Austin, San Antonio Homebuyers the ability to update and upgrade a foreclosure home or an older home needing some updating. The upgrades can even include new appliances, including a washer and dryer! Another benefit of the program? The 3.5% down payment can be a GIFT for Houston, Austin, San Antonio home buyers using FHA!
