Are you looking to buy a home to remodel this spring? Homes on the market can require renovations from major repairs to pass newer inspection standards, to updates to bring the home into this decade, to minor touch-ups to meet your style requirements.
It used to be that you could get a home equity loan or line of credit (HELOC), so you could do all the renovations yourself. But, in today’s market, a HELOC can be difficult to obtain. Plus most homeowners just don’t have the time to do the remodeling work themselves, since their jobs, family and other obligations keep them busy. Therefore, it makes more sense to hire a professional to do the work. But you may be wondering, “how do I finance the renovations then?”
That’s where a Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation Mortgage comes in. With a HomeStyle Renovation loan, you can finance the home purchase with certain home improvements into one mortgage. So you only have one loan, interest rate and monthly payment. And you only have to go to one closing – saving you time and money.
Plus, the great part is, the renovations are tied into your equity. So if you decide to sell your home in the future, the remodeling cost is part of your sales price.
A HomeStyle Renovation Mortgage enables you to get a mortgage and receive funds to cover repairs, remodeling or improvements up to 50% of the “as-completed” appraised value of the property. Other features of the program include:
With a HomeStyle Renovation Mortgage, you can turn a property with potential into the home of your dreams, without breaking the bank.
