FHA 203K Lending For Your Next Purchase or Refinance Rehabilitation Renovation Loan

FHA 203K Rehab Lending For Your Next Purchase or Refinance

Private money lending is GREAT! I love the concept of being able to borrow money at 10-12% with 4 points, for a period of 6 months. After that, I love it more when the lender penalizes me each month thereafter until I am able to get a refinance completed. I kid, of course, but that is the reality with one of my clients right now.

He purchased a 4 plex for $200,000, and was given another $58,000 for rehab costs to fix the place up. That purchase was done 2 months ago, and should appraise out around $320,000. He now is ready to refinance the note to a conventional loan at a much lower interest rate, so he can payoff the private investor.

Let me back up by saying I think Private Money Lending is a fantastic tool to help a buyer not only get into a property, but to also give them the rehab money to fix up the property. From a strategic standpoint, some might say this is even better then doing a FHA 203K Streamline, as long as the new loan avoids the mortgage insurance.

It is important that YOU, the home buyer, know ALL of your options with REHAB lending, not for the actual rehab itself, but for the takeaway financing after the property appraises out. Many lenders want seasoning for 90 days, six months, and some even a year.

I was able to get this buyer 75% of appraised value with 2 months of ownership, and I am able to count the 2 lease agreements he has in place as rental income right now.  That actually saved the loan, reducing the Debt To Income, and the best part..NO MORTGAGE INSURANCE.  But some people do not fair as well, or as lucky, and the FHA 203K loan might make more sense.

It is very important to have an exit strategy when working with Private Money Investors, because if you don't, you will pay for it, over and over again, until you can get conventional or FHA financing.

Here is an example of an FHA 203K loan and of a Rehab Loan
