There are some important features to remember when looking into a FHA 203K Rehab loan.  These are great loans for buyers looking to purchase a foreclosure or short sale or for the home owner who wants to update or remodel there house.  Below are a few important things to remember:

  • FHA loans are for primary residences only-  you cannot be an investor and try to get a FHA loan or a FHA 203K rehab loan.  This is really important- I cannot tell you how many calls we get from investors looking to utilize this program and or skirt the system.  FHA loans are for primary residences only!
  • 2 types of FHA 203K loans-  you can go with a Full K or the FHA 203K Streamline.  I will explain these two loans in more detail in my next post.  But for now just remember that you can only get up to $35,000 with the FHA 203K streamline and the repairs must be cosmetic in nature, nothing structural. 
  • Single close loan- unlike traditional construction lending you only have one closing with the FHA 203K loan.  No need for construction loans and then permanent financing with the FHA 203K rehab loan you get all of this in 1 single close solution
  • Up to 4 unit properties- you can use the 203K loan to finance properties from 1 to 4 units for both purchases and refinances.
  • Down payment as low as 3.5%- down payments are the same for a regular FHA program as they are or the 203K. 

FHA 203K rehab loans are a great alternative to second mortgages, home equity lines and construction financing.  Finding an FHA lender who specializes in 203K's is very important.  You do not want to be dealing with someone who just started learning this program- you need a seasoned lender who underwrites these loans in house. 

Feel free to call me with any questions or if you would like to see if an FHA 203K rehab loan is right for you and your family.  You can reach me anytime at 609-217-9409 or via email at

Jon, the 203k program is a very complex program ... but a GREAT one that is underutilized. If the loan officer doesn't know how to help clients structure it properly, it can be a disaster. Glad to see an expert in the field such as yourself, has taken time to make this informative post. Good job!

The 203k loan is an under-utilized tool. Many buyers could create equity by using the FHA/203k loan to buy and renovate homes that need some work.
