What is an FHA 203k loan?
Say you’re looking to make home remodeling updates to an outdated living space. Or, maybe you’re looking to purchase and fix up a property to meet your needs. In either scenario, the Federal Housing Administration’s 203k Rehabilitation Mortgage Insurance Program could be the perfect option for you.
The FHA 203k loan is meant to help homeowners and homebuyers make repairs and improvements to their property. Unlike a standard mortgage, the 203k loan allows you to finance the purchase (or refinancing) of a home as well as home-improvement costs via a single mortgage. That way, the home improvement or repair project does not have to be complete before the loan is issued.

FHA 203k Loan Benefits
With a 203k loan, a homeowner or home buyer can add money to their mortgage loan to finance home repairs or improvements. The 203k benefits both borrowers and lenders by insuring a single, long-term, fixed, or adjustable rate loan covering a property’s purchase and renovations.
By taking this route, a borrower avoids the long and costly process typically associated with purchasing a home that needs repairs or updates. Moreover, the lender is protected by having the loan insured even before security can be established based on the condition and value of the home.
As a borrower of the 203k loan, you will be able to:
- Package both home purchase and rehabilitation costs into a single mortgage.
- Extend your renovation payments over the life of the loan rather than pay a lump sum.
- Deduct interest you pay on the mortgage on your income taxes.
- Avoid stress that comes with applying for a second mortgage.
- Save time and money.
FHA 203k Loan Types
FHA Standard 203k loan:
Choose the Standard 203k loan for rehabilitation projects totaling at least $5,000. This option is generally meant for bigger construction projects, although it may also cover minor improvements as long as the cost exceeds $5,000. In fact, you can finance nearly any sort of home improvement so long as it adds property value.
However, a requirement of the Standard 203k loan is that you must utilize a HUD-approved consultant, who inspects and evaluates your property’s rehabilitation.

FHA Limited 203k loan:
The Limited 203k loan is meant for home-improvement projects that do not involve purchasing or refinancing a property. Instead, it covers less extensive home-improvement projects, such as new carpet installation or upgrading your kitchen cabinets. Although there is no minimum spend requirement, the cap is $35,000 in repairs.
