Admirals Bank Offers FHA 203(k) Loan Allowing Borrowers to Finance the Purchase & Renovation of a Residential Property

Mon, 2014-05-12

Providence, RI – Admirals Bank, an FHA approved lender and leading national provider of the Title I Home Improvement Loan, recently added the FHA 203(k) loan to its product suite as part of the Bank’s continuing effort to provide its customers with an extensive variety of home lending solutions.

The FHA 203(k) loan allows customers to secure one home mortgage, at a long-term fixed or adjustable rate, to finance the purchase, refinance and renovation of a residential property utilizing its after-improved value instead of the customary as-is value. The total mortgage amount varies based on the homeowner’s county, state and property location and generally ranges between $271,050 and $729,750.*

The FHA 203(k) loan can also be immensely valuable to those looking to buy a home in a state in which certain inspections are required prior to purchase. Currently, outside of the FHA 203(k), home buyers are commonly dissatisfied with financing options to purchase and repair sullied homes. Additionally many buyers seldom decide to utilize their existing home equity to complete a purchase.

“This loan is vastly advantageous for the individual seeking to purchase distressed properties or refinance and renovate an existing home,” claims Robert Briden, Vice President and Director of Loan Originations at Admirals Bank. “Buyers looking to acquire homes that offer everything they are looking for, such as access to good school systems, proximity to work, and value frequently take advantage of this loan to procure and rehabilitate desired properties.  Otherwise, they may have to wait years to gain sufficient equity in market appreciation.”
