First, find the property that you wish to purchase, and conduct a preliminary feasibility analysis with your real estate professional. If you are already living in the home you want to repair, get a HUD-approved lender to help you with the next steps and details of the Program.
Your lender will assign a 203(k) consultant to inspect the home, identify needed repairs or improvements and provide a work write-up and cost estimate for the project.

How the 203(k) Loan Program works.
- The property must be used as a principal residence by an individual or family
- You take out the loan as a 15- or 30 year fixed rate mortgage, or as an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) from a HUD-approved lender.
- The total amount of your mortgage is based on the projected value of your home After the renovation project is completed, including the cost of the work.
- A portion of your loan is used for the purchase of the home (or to pay off the existing mortgage in case of a refinance)
- The remainder goes into an interest-bearing account on your behalf and is released in stages as rehabilitation is completed
- FHA requires that a minimum of $5,000 is used for eligible repairs or improvements and that the repairs are completed within six months after the loan's closing
