203k Renovation Loans from RealFi Funding

Here’s why an FHA 203k Renovation Loan may be exactly what you’re looking for…

Most people think renovation loans are designed for houses that are in need of major rehabilitation. However, they are far more than just that – they can include a vast range of projects, like bathroom remodeling, roofing, flooring, room additions, air conditioning systems, and even new appliances! These can all be funded with a renovation loan which covers not only the cost of the property, but also the cost of necessary home repairs. Turn a place with potential into the home of your dreams with a renovation loan.

We offer several products for minor or major upgrades on your home. Our renovation programs make it easy for you to improve your property by including the extra financing in a purchase or refinance loan.

HomeStyle® prevents borrowers of a purchase or refinance from having to get a second mortgage to renovate and is offered to both homebuyers and investors.

A renovation program makes it convenient for you to improve a property by including the extra financing in a purchase or refinance loan.

Homeowners whose homes need improvement can also refinance with these loans.

Perfect for first-time buyers, low-to moderate-income, buyers with limited cash, and for those who have minor credit problems. The first step in obtaining your rehabilitation loan is getting in contact with a loan officer who will walk you through the process and guide you the entire time.

Mortgage Calculator

It’s important to know exactly what you’re paying each month before you apply for a mortgage. Anyone can take the home property value and enter it into a mortgage calculator to determine the monthly amount. While a mortgage calculator is great for calculating your monthly payments, there are a lot more factors that get calculated into the price the calculator misses which may result in a higher payment.

Mortgage Calculator

  • Using a mortgage calculator is a great way to estimate what your monthly mortgage payment will be.
  • However, there is so much more to consider than just the rate.
  • Do you know what makes up your mortgage payment? As in – what are you paying for beyond the mortgage calculator calculations?

Bottom Line

When applying for a mortgage, it’s very important that you find a loan program or product that fits your specific financial situation and goals. At Residential Home Funding Corp., our loan officers spend time looking at your financial situation, your qualifications, and talk with you to give you the best options available for your personal needs. Our extensive reviews boast 5-star customer satisfaction for a reason.

The more you know

If you’re trying to figure out what you’ll be paying your lender each month, consider all the costs associated with a mortgage payment and your mortgage rate. You start with the home’s price, which will be driven by the health of the housing market. Your credit score is also a huge factor, as is down payment, loan program and DTI.

 

While the mortgage calculator is a wonderful resource for calculating your monthly payments, keep in mind that more factors go toward the price besides what is represented by the calculator. Hopefully, this breakdown showed you where your monthly payment goes each month and puts your mind at ease.
