Streamline 203k Program

HUD has developed a new FHA insured mortgage program, called the “Streamline 203k” Limited Repair Program that permits homebuyers to finance up to an additional $35,000 of repairs into their mortgage to purchase and improve or upgrade the home before move-in or to refinance an existing mortgage and add up to $35,000 in repairs or improvements. With this new product, homebuyers can quickly and easily tap into cash to pay for property repairs or improvements, such as those identified by a home inspector or FHA appraiser. Unlike the standard 203(k) program, any FHA approved lender may originate a Streamlined 203k mortgage.

* Repair/Replacement of roofs, gutters and downspouts
* Repair/Replacement/upgrade of existing HVAC systems

Team Woodall Tip: The Streamline 203k Program can be a fantastic asset for purchasers or homeowners looking to renovate a property in need of repairs, however the process for obtaining the financing isn’t necessarily a quick undertaking. Contact a lender for additional details on the program, but be advised that the borrower will have substantial work and documentation to provide in order to obtain money under this program.
