Designed for home rehabilitation purposes, FHA 203(k) loans can help pay for your home renovations. These loans are available both as a refinance and purchase. Thus, you can borrow against the equity in your home for home improvement and you can also get a single mortgage to finance both purchase and renovation of the home.
FHA 203(k) Loans can be a great option for home buyers who can meet these requirements:
To encourage the revitalization of older Southern California neighborhoods or damaged homes, FHA provides two types of loans to help homebuyers reserve a portion of loan funds to accomplish non-structural and structural repairs.
A standard 203(k) loan is provided for properties with the need for structural upgrades.
203(k) Eligible Repairs and Improvements include:
Ineligible Repairs include:
A Limited 203(k) loan covers non-structural upgrades, such as painting, new counters, cabinets, patching holes, replacing doors, repair/installation of HVAC systems, and purchase/installation of new appliances. The maximum repair amount which can be financed using a Limited 203(k) loan is $35,000 with no minimum requirement for repairs.
Eligible properties for a 203(k) loan include:
Before applying to receive a home renovation loan, decide as best you can regarding how much money you will need to begin your home renovation. If you hire a contractor, ask them to give you an estimate on the total cost of the home repairs. Once you have that specific number, discuss the possibility of a home renovation loan with us. Different loans offer different amounts to borrowers, so talking to a licensed Loan Officer can help determine the specific loan and amount that fits your project’s goals.

We recently had the distinct honor and pleasure to work with Mike Zamani (of CostPro) to refinance our home mortgage.
Mike made our journey through today’s finance world a smooth process and actually somewhat easy. He was always available to answer questions, offer explanations promptly, patiently, and competently. Mike’s communication style and even his voice, which is crisp, succinct, yet calming helped us feel we were in very good hands.
Beyond Mike himself, his team were also very efficient, competent, and worked with us to assure things happened smoothly.
We highly recommend Mike Zamani! A gentleman and scholar indeed, with a great personality to boot!
Thanks again Mike!
It’s the day after I closed on my Re-Fi and I still can’t believe it! I was contacted by a bank and after looking at my file, they said I needed to get a co-signer! I forgot about doing it until I got a call from Tony. He looked everything over and thought it was doable. They put Tony through the wringer. No matter what we gave them, they wanted more. Finally, they ran out of things to ask us and said YES! If anyone but Tony had called me I would not of had the same result. I will be forever grateful!!Liz S.
To whom it may concern,
this is to confirm that Brian Mays, Lee Garoutte, and their team are some of the most dedicated people to work with, they went out of the way and bent over backwards to make sure that my loan went through. They went over and above to get the task completed. I highly recommend Brian, Lee, their team to anyone who is trying to get their loan approved.
