Reno Mortgage Eligibility

Got BIG remodeling dreams but a small savings account?

Whether you’re interested in purchasing a residential home that requires renovation work or would like to upgrade your current living space, a renovation loan program may be the perfect financing option for you. When it comes to taking out loans, whether it’s for a car or a home, your credit score will always come into play. Fortunately, it’s getting easier for homebuyers and home owners to get approved for an FHA-backed home loan. If you currently have at least a 620 FICO score and 3.5 percent down, you may be eligible for an FHA 203(k) loan. Additional requirements need to be met for those whose FICO scores are below 620.  Speak with one of our Licensed Loan Officers to learn if you are eligible for a Renovation Loan.
