    An FHA 203(k) loan is a type of government-insured mortgage that allows the borrower to take out one loan for two purposes: home purchase and home renovation. An FHA 203(k) loan is wrapped around rehabilitation or repairs to a home that will become the mortgagor’s primary residence.

    An FHA 203(k) is effectively an FHA construction loan.

    • An FHA 203(k) loan is a government-backed mortgage that is essentially a construction loan that finances both the purchase and repairs of a home.
    • These loans are intended to support homeownership among lower-income households, allowing them to improve and update older properties as their primary residence.
    • The FHA offers different varieties of the 203(k) loan depending on the extent of repairs needed.

    There are two types of 203(k) loans: limited 203(k) and standard 203(k).3 The loans apply only to individuals and families who intend on making the property their primary residence. This means that real estate investors and houseflippers do not qualify.

    A boon to DIYers and home project enthusiasts, an FHA 203(k) loan – also known as a mortgage rehabilitation loan, renovation loan, or Section 203(k) loan – is a type of government loan that can be used to fund both a home’s purchase and renovations under a single mortgage. While Rocket Mortgage does not offer FHA 203(k) loans, read on to find out more about 203(k) loans as well as some other options that may be a better fit for your financial needs.

    What Is An FHA 203(k) Rehab Loan?

    A 203(k) rehab loan is a form of home financing or refinancing that enables home buyers and homeowners to combine both real estate costs and incurred renovation expenses into a single mortgage. In effect, it allows home buyers who are considering purchasing a fixer-upper that requires multiple repairs and significant rehabilitation efforts to roll the cost of both the property and these projects into one home loan. Keep in mind that a conventional mortgage might be an even better loan option for homeowners looking to make more extravagant updates to their homes.

    Streamline 203(k) Loan

    A streamlined 203(k) loan, or limited loan, is frequently utilized for homes that require fewer repairs. It provides home buyers or homeowners with a maximum of $35,000 for renovations. No minimum cost requirement is attached, and applications may be simpler to process due to the lower sums borrowed under the terms of this type of loan. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to roll major structural repairs into the sums that you wish to borrow.

    Standard 203(k) Loan

    On the flip side, a standard 203(k) loan is typically used for larger jobs and covers major structural repairs exceeding $35,000. Renovations must cost a minimum of $5,000 though, and a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) consultant must be hired to oversee the project and renovation process. Select rules and guidelines must also be followed to ensure compliance with government code.

    FAQ

    What's a mortgage APR?

    Your annual percentage rate, or APR, is one of the many costs that comes with a mortgage. While your mortgage’s interest rate is the annual cost to borrow money (expressed as a percentage), your APR takes other fees and charges into account.

    Your APR includes the loan’s interest rate, any mortgage points you purchase, and lender and broker fees. Looking at your APR can give you a picture of the true cost of your mortgage.

    A mortgage’s APR is usually more than its interest rate.

    What are mortgage fees?

    Charging fees is one way that lenders make money off mortgage loans. Mortgage fees should be listed on your closing documents and may include the following:

    Origination fee
    Application/processing/administrative fee
    Underwriting fee
    Points fee
    Appraisal fee
    Inspection fee
    Attorney review fee
    Private mortgage insurance
    Homeowners insurance
    Title search or insurance fees
    Survey fee
    Prepayment penalty

    What are different types of mortgage loans?

    The most common type of mortgage loan is a conventional loan. Other types are backed by the Federal Housing Administration or are from a special program such as the Veterans Administration or the USDA.

    Most mortgages are conventional, meaning they’re not part of any specific government program — though they’re still subject to federal mortgage laws. Conventional loans typically cost less than FHA loans, but it may be harder to qualify for a conventional loan.

    The FHA regulates and insures FHA loans, and private lenders make the loans. FHA loans allow you to borrow with a lower down payment and generally with lower credit scores. But you may be limited on how much you can borrow through an FHA mortgage.

    Special home loan programs are tailored for certain groups. For example, VA loans are for veterans, military service members or surviving spouses, while USDA loans are for lower- or middle-income borrowers in rural areas.

    What documents do I need for a mortgage?

    Each lender will have its own requirements for what documents to submit when applying for a mortgage. But here’s the info you’ll generally need to provide.

    A month’s worth of paystubs
    W-2s for the past two years
    Your federal income tax return for the past two tax years
    Proof of income
    Recent bank statements
    Proof of your down payment amount, such as a savings account statement
    Documentation of a name change (if you’ve recently changed your name)
    Identification, such as a driver’s license
    Your Social Security number
    A certificate of housing counseling or home-buyer education (if you have one)

    Will mortgage rates go down?

    It depends — mortgage rates are generally influenced by the prime rate. Many banks base their prime rates on the federal funds rate, which is the rate banks charge each other for short-term loans. When the Federal Reserve changes the federal funds rate, mortgage interest rates can react and go up or down.

    But a lower (or higher) prime rate doesn’t necessarily determine the mortgage rate you’ll qualify for. Your credit scores, the type of loan you’re seeking, the price of your home and how much down payment you can afford can also affect your mortgage rate.
