Yes. There are a variety of different loans available when looking for a mortgage that helps pay for home renovations. From loans dedicated to helping the homebuyer put in a pool, to loans that assist in repairing weather damage, there are several options available to Scottsdale homebuyers who are interested in renovating or repairing a new home. One of the most common home renovation loans is an FHA 203(k).
An FHA 203(k) is a loan program provided for by the Federal Housing Administration.
This type of loan allows homebuyers to purchase a home with the cost of specific repairs included in the mortgage amount. These loans are primarily directed toward first time home buyers, but there are several qualifications that determine if you are eligible for one of these home renovation loans.
The borrower must be able to prove that money was spent on renovating the house. An eligible credit score must also be proven, but fortunately enough for homebuyers looking to take out this type of loan, the minimum credit score is easier to obtain than other loans. If you have around a 640 credit score, you could qualify to receive an FHA 203(k).
Before applying to receive a home renovation loan, decide as best you can how much money you will need to begin your home renovation. If you hire a contractor, ask them to give you an estimate on the total cost of the home repairs. Once you have that specific number, discuss the possibility of a Scottsdale home renovation loan with a mortgage broker. Different loans offer different amounts to borrowers, so talking to a mortgage broker can help determine the specific loan and amount that fits your project’s goals.

Extremely pleased with the overall professionalism and experience of the loan process. I am now a raving fan of Sean, his team members and Home Point Financial. 2 Thumbs Up!!Mr. Romaguera
This process has been amazing. I was nervous because they switched to me after working with another agent and lenders don’t always take care of the new guys. You guys have been great though. I really appreciate it and I’m very impressed.Kara Gaut
Sean was always available to answer questions or concerns we had. Another “great help” was Alexa Johnson, loan assistant to Sean. This young lady was incredible in keeping us posted and moving the loan rapidly along. She was the most help of all. I would recommend these two to others. The greatest help was Alexa Johnson, in California. Alexa was the hub of the wheel and we cannot say enough about how helpful she was. This loan closed early, because in great part to Alexa. She kept things moving forward and got my concerns or questions answered quickly. This experience, by far, was the best, most convenient and quickest of all the times we’ve financed a home. I would highly recommend Home Point. Particularly, Sean Wohland.Hunt Family
This is about the sixth or seventh loan Sean has done for me personally. He is very professional and I completely trust his advice and expertise. Since I am a Realtor as well, I also highly recommend him to my clients. Sean and his team are great and I am completely satisfied with my experience!McElmell Family
