203(k) | Basics

One Valuable Program with Two Great Options

  • The Streamline Option is available for smaller or simpler scenarios where the total cost of renovations adds up to $35,000 or less. There is no minimum dollar amount of repairs or improvements required.
  • The Full or Consultant Option is available for larger projects that are more than $35,000 or contain structural work (load bearing walls, etc.). This option requires the expertise of a trained HUD Consultant to help supervise the project. There is no limit on the total dollars you can spend, however FHA loan limits apply).
  • Loan terms for both options are the same; the only difference is the scope or nature of the work being completed.
  • Most homes can be completely remodeled in 60 days or less, but for larger projects you have up to six months to complete your dream renovations.
