“If You Don’t Know the Product Don’t Talk about it”

 

“Also based on my income the last guy told me I was eligible for a 203 K. Does this apply for you too? Not that I want to spend that much but I might need a little more than $200,000.”

 Thanks Tom

 

Tom was referred to me by another mortgage company. I have been coaching him through some credit issues that are currently prohibiting him from getting a mortgage. He really wants to be a homeowner so is totally committed to do whatever is necessary.

 

The previous loan officer told him that because of his income he would be able to get an FHA 203 K loan. After speaking with him about his particular email above he told me that the loan officer informed him that he had to make over a certain income level, which is totally crazy. Sure income is a factor but the truth is anyone can get this type of loan.

 

There are two types of FHA 203 K loans, a streamline version which means that the renovations need to be under $35,000 and involve no structural changes and a full 203 K version which has no dollar limit, other than the county limits for total loan size.

 

Before too long Tom will be a homeowner and can stop paying rent.
