203k Mortgage Southfield MI - Home Renovation - Detroit Build - 2031203k Rehab Mortgage Insurance for Your Southfield Home

If you're having difficulty finding the perfect house for you and your family, you've come to the right place. The Section 203(k) Loan, backed by the federal government, enables homebuyers and homeowners to finance both the purchase of a house and the cost of its rehabilitation through a single mortgage -- up to an additional $35,000 of repairs. It can even be used to make accessibility upgrades for persons with disabilities.

Getting Started With Your 203k Loan

The first thing you want to do is find a property that is "almost" your ideal home. Then when you are ready to submit an offer it should state you are seeking a 203k home loan for the improvements that are necessary. After that you need an approved FHA 203k lender who will help you with a proposal that puts together a detailed and approved format that shows the cost of labor and materials for each improvement and repair. The contractor that is chosen by you and lender is the one that puts this information together after working with the home buyer and lender.

As long as the repairs and improvements are below $35,000.00 including contingency and the property cost to be owner-occupied, then the buyer is eligible to use a streamlined loan. Your lender will determine the new loan amount with the equation: below the cost of repairs and improvements + the purchase price = new loan amount or up to 110% of the after improved value (whichever is less). At this point, your lender will have the property reappraised to reflect the increase in value to the property after the repairs and improvements are completed.

Hear what our customers have to say about their experience with Detroit Build!

"Pretty good contractor. I've been doing business with them for several years, and they've remodeled 10+ investment houses for me in the Royal Oak, Ferndale, and Berkley area. They have deep resources, which is important for remodels because you always discover surprises as you get into the project. There isn't a job too small or too large that I wouldn't recommend them for."
