    Using 203k home renovation loans to build your real estate business

    in Real Estate

    Listen and Learn what a 203K renovation loan is and how it differs from traditional financing as well as how it will help your Clients and put more transaction opportunities in your pocket on this LIVE Radio interview with the expert himself…. Aaron Simons


    The 203k loan can solve a myriad of problems and create a win-win for all involved. The 203k loan just isn’t for foreclosures. It can help create a vision for home buyers who want to use the loan for remodeling purposes on a property that needs updating and it’s comforting to know that you have a loan that can both buy a home and carry financing for upgrades all in one.


    But why aren’t Realtors more receptive to the 203k loan? Do any of these sound familiar?


    “It takes too long to get a 203k loan done”


    “I’ve heard horror stories about the 203k loan”


    “The asset manager (of the REO lender) doesn’t accept 203k financing”


    “Why would someone want to use the 203k loan to buy a fixer when they can just buy a move in ready property” 


    “I can’t get a preapproval letter with the 203k loan”


    “I’m not comfortable with the way this loan works and it puts my client (seller) in jeopardy”


    Join us as we answer the question of why you as a realtor need to know more about the 203K renovation loan and how to use it to build your real estate business.
