The FHA 203(k) loan is readily available to borrowers of all earnings ranges who intend to occupy their house in Phoenix. This loan also opens the door for many Arizona first-time homebuyers and applicants with much less than excellent credit, although still allowing for reduced down payments. Properties eligible for this loan include any single family residences, condominiums, townhouses and properties with 1-4 units located in the Phoenix area.
The Streamlined 203(k) system is meant to facilitate uncomplicated rehabilitation and/or improvements to a house for which plans, consultants, engineers and/or architects usually are not needed. The repair fees might be as much as $35,000 and there is no minimal requirement. (***Please note that there are also 203(k) loan programs accessible without a maximum repair expense quantity and extra improvements capabilities.)
The subsequent is a checklist of a number of the eligible improvements and/or repairs:
?•- Repair/Replacement/Upgrades of roofs, gutters, HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical systems and flooring
?•- Minor remodeling of kitchens and bathrooms
?•- Purchase and set up of appliances

The actual expense with the renovation is based upon the contractors’ accepted contracts specifying the scope of work, cost of materials and labor and timeframe. All repairs must be finished by a contractor within six months of your closing date. Borrowers are required to have the necessary knowledge and experience to carry out any work without a contractor.Questions? Contact David Krushinsky Today!
