FHA Standard 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage

The Federal Housing Administration’s FHA Standard 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage is an easy to use mortgage program specifically designed for those who wish to make improvements on an owner occupied home they own, or would like to buy.

Rather than having to obtain a separate loan to finance the cost of repairs (or walking away from a home they love because they don’t have the cash for home improvements), the FHA Standard 203(k) Rehabilitation Mortgage allows you to finance the rehab costs within the first mortgage loan.

Pac West Home Loans is now offering two different 203(k) loans:
