203(k) | Overview

The FHA 203 (k) loan allows a borrower to purchase or refinance and rehabilitate a property with one loan closing. The projected rehabilitation costs are held in an escrow account and disbursed as work is completed and inspected. The loan amount is based on the projected market value of the property when all repairs are completed.

  • FHA standard guidelines
