Many people we speak with are apprehensive to list their homes because houses are flying off the market and they are afraid they won’t be able to find something that they want to buy. So, if you find yourself ready to upgrade to a larger home or one with more amenities, consider upgrading your current home to include those features you are looking for, instead of buying a new house. This will save you the hours of house hunting, the frustration of packing, and allow you to increase the value of your current home.
The FHA (Federal Housing Administration) 203k Loan has two tiers, the limited and the standard, so no matter what upgrade you have in mind, the 203k will likely cover it. Projects range from painting to new windows, to upgrade heating systems, to kitchen remodels, and even brand-new additions or structural changes. The only items that the 203k won’t cover are luxury items such as pools or outdoor kitchens—but that’s where the HomeStyle Loan comes in (more on HomeStyle to come). So instead of searching for a new home with a second living area, consider refinancing your home and adding a den on the back of the house. If you have always dreamed of a gourmet kitchen, upgrade your current kitchen instead of looking for a new one.
