“Our growing family was able to buy a home in our dream neighborhood without the markup of a turnkey property. With our HomeStyle Renovation Loan, we bought an older home in need of love and gave it a complete makeover inside and out. We now have our perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood!” – Natalie H.

Types of Renovation Loans
The Fannie Mae HomeStyle Renovation Loan is a conventional mortgage that allows you to purchase or refinance both the cost of the home and planned renovations.
Jumbo Renovation Loans is a non-conventional mortgage that allows you to purchase or refinance both the cost of the home and planned renovations, all under one loan and one interest rate. You are allowed to include the cost of repairs and renovations up to $250,000 or 30% of the as-improved loan amount, whichever is less (including 10% contingency.) This loan is for amounts greater than $417,000.
FHA 203K Loans include the cost of repairs and renovations when that amount is over $34,999 OR there are structural repairs involved (ex. foundation repairs) including a 10-20% contingency. Homeowners and buyers will enjoy the perks of FHA financing, including low interest rates, a 3.5% down payment, and less stringent qualification guidelines, however their loan amount will be limited to $334,650 in most cases.
The FHA 203K Streamline Loan is similar to the FHA 203K but only allows for cosmetic improvements up to $34,999 including a 10% contingency. Again, homeowners and buyers will be able to take advantage of the great terms FHA loans have to offer, but cannot upgrade or repair structural items without jumping up to the full 203k.
EZ-C is an exclusive conventional product that we offer for short term projects of $35,000 or less, combined with conventional loans. Rather than going through a more extensive vetting process with a larger project, clients will see less expensive costs and an easy, streamlined process.
We offer an extensive suite of escrow holdback products including Buyer and Seller Funded Repair Escrows, Minimum Property Standard Repairs, Weather Related Escrows, USDA Escrow Holdbacks, and HUD REO Escrows. These are all great problem solving tools for buyers and sellers, and can be a quick fix for any transaction.
Include a luxurious swimming pool and outdoor kitchen with our Pool Loan. This can be included in a refinance or purchase and piggyback off any conventional or jumbo loan. Clients will enjoy one loan, one low rate, and one set of costs.
