This past week Freddie Mac announced a new mortgage product that will allow home buyers to also include the renovation costs in one loan with the purchase price. This will allow home buyers to have more options when looking at homes that are older and in need of repair or renovation.
For example, if you purchase a home for 100k and you need 10k for renovation/repairs, your new loan would be 110k.
It may sound simple but this option was not offered before in this capacity. Sure the FHA 203k has been around helping people achieve almost the same thing. But many people were not fans of that mortgage option due to the many hurdles it came with,
This new mortgage named CHOICERenovationSM will give also help sellers reach potential buyers that would otherwise not be interested in a home if it need some work.
So why this new mortgage?
Well, this type of loan has been introduced to address the aging homes that are out in the market. Many homes are older and in need of work that most sellers will not complete just to sell there home.
I see this type of loan benefiting first time home buyers and millennial's who don't have the cash flow necessary to repair or renovate a home up front.
Reach out to me if you are looking to get into a home with this or any other type of mortgage.
