It's time to let investors back under the FHA 203(k) umbrella. It's past time to get vacant homes cleaned up and alive again with occupants.

“The 203k is a great mortgage for the current economy and real estate market because almost every owner occupied borrower qualifies for it. In fact, the use of the 203k has increased ~650% since 2007.
The real estate market still needs assistance and lifting the moratorium on the investor 203k can aid in a quicker recovery, but only if implemented properly.
Just make certain to use a Certified 203k Contractor for the renovations.”

“From my experience with 203k loans, the best advice is to use a lender that offers assistance via third party with 203k processing.
This shortens the closing time by weeks. Try cfs-mortgage(.)com/203k for more information.”
