What is the Process for Getting an FHA 203K Renovation Loan? Let me walk you through it

What is the Process for getting an FHA 203K Renovation Loan? Find out the Basics for FHA 203K Streamline and FHA 203K Standard programs

When ever there is anything offered by the government it tends to be a bit confusing…so, I have dedicated my time to learn everything I can about this program plus develop relationships with the Renovation Mortgage Specialists in the Lehigh Valley so I can walk my Lehigh Valley Home Buyers through taking advantage of this opportunity available to them.


What a wonderful idea. Build a Loan Program  that will assist in building up our communities by renovating homes that are in need of maintenance AND repair- Foreclosures can be devistating to any community – NOW you can get a loan to help the home buyer to do the repairs they need that will help them have the home of their dreams and bring back the market value of the community where they are located at the same time.   WOW! NOW THIS WAS A GREAT IDEA!!
