Home Renovations and Understanding the FHA 203k Financing Process Presentation Transcript

  • 1. FHA 203k Financing Presented By Vito Simone HUD Certified 203k Consultant
  • 2. How Does a Borrower Decide on a 203k Loan?
      • Looking to purchase a property that requires repair
      • Owns a home that requires repair and cannot afford the repairs
      • Wants to gain equity in a home purchase using the 3.5% down payment benefits of an FHA loan program
  • 3. Lender Considerations
      • Help Realtors understand how 203k loans can be used as a tool
      • The loan officer needs to do a Pre-Approval versus a Pre-Qualification (automated underwriting approval)
      • Get the documentation and always ask for tax returns (unreimbursed business expenses)
      • Once a property is selected the timing to get to settlement must be thoroughly understood and respected by all parties

  • 4. Loan Officer Considerations
      • Help Realtors pick REO Listings to do Open Houses
      • Develop a “203k Ready” strategy for Realtors
      • Sponsor Rehab Workshops: bring Contractor and Consultant
      • Do the drip marketing for the Realtor

  • 6. Processing – 203k Versus 203b Loan Program
    • Different Processes:
    • Loan Officer should ask selling agent to check comps from the beginning to be certain that the value is there
    • The Appraisal Process and Timing
      • Settlement is typically 45 days after the appraisal is ordered
      • Set this expectation with the borrower/agent and reinforce
      • The time between offer acceptance and the ordering of the appraisal is most important factor influencing your closing date
      • Be clear on the documentation required by your operations center for loan submission

  • 7. Processing – 203k Versus 203b Loan Program
    • Different Processes (cont):
    • The appraisal cannot be ordered until the HUD consultant has prepared SOR or Feasibility study
      • 203k consultant prepares SOR ( S pecification O f R epairs) that eventually gets signed by all parties including the contractor
      • SOR does not need to be signed by anyone except the HUD consultant to order appraisal for most lenders (signatures should not hold up the process)
      • Target two weeks from contract acceptance
