A renovation loan gives you the opportunity to refinance a home in need of repairs or updates and roll those costs into one simple home loan. The repairs and improvements can be as simple as fixing your roof to adding a master suite. Your loan and the value of the property will be based upon the condition and value after your repairs are completed; allowing you the potential to gain instant equity in your home!
Renovation loans come in many shapes and sizes. You can get a Fannie Mae HomeStyle, FHA 203(k), or VA loan.
Most renovation loans will require you to complete your project with a certified contractor. This is to make sure that the home meets the terms set by the individual loan you choose.
Renovation loans are offered with a single closing, even if there is major construction involved in the renovation. You will only have to pay closing costs once, and will only have to sign paperwork once.
No matter what your financial health is like, there may be a renovation loan for you. Your credit score could be as low as 580.

Renovation loan is a loan that includes the cost of home repairs in the overall loan amount. This loan can be used for repairs that an appraiser requires, or for changes the homeowner wants to make, and it can be used to pay for structural and cosmetic repairs.
A renovation loan is similar to a FHA loan, but with added repairs built in. If you're buying a fixer upper, your loan amount is based off of the purchase price plus the total renovation costs.
