There is no doubt that the current real estate market offers a lot of great bargains on short-sale, bank owned, and foreclosed homes. However, many of these homes are in need of upgrades and repairs. Missing appliances, ruined carpet & flooring, old roof, missing cabinets, and plumbing issues. Most lenders don't offer loan programs that will be able to help folks buy homes in this condition.

Cambria Mortgage offers both full and streamline FHA 203K
loans to make the process of buying a home that
needs a little TLC (or quite a bit in some cases!) easier,
more affordable, and quicker. Many of us have seen
firsthand, or have heard stories about foreclosed home that
have been torn up, stripped, vandalized, etc. With
conventional financing, these homes are very difficult to
sell or buy, as they are not in move in condition, and most
lenders will not lend on a damaged home.
The Streamline program should not be confused with the more complicated FHA 203K rehab loan, which can accommodate major remodels, major damage repair, storm damage, etc. The FHA 203K Streamline rehab loan is just that - Streamlined, and should work for most people on most homes.
This loan can help with new paint (in/out), new siding, new
roof, new flooring, new appliances, HVAC repair/replacement,
electrical & plumbing repair & upgrades, new windows, decks,
porches, patios, minor kitchen remodels, & more.

For example, if the purchase price is $100,000, and your repairs are $25,000. The appraiser must say the house will be worth at least $125,000 when the repairs are done.
