The FHA 203k program helps FHA home buyers finance desired and required repairs or renovations into their FHA home.
An FHA 203k loan allows an FHA home buyer to close on their home purchase first. Then, repairs are completed afterward.
FHA 203k Eligible Repairs
Maximum Amount To be Financed
FHA 203k loans allow an Arizona FHA buyer to finance up to 50% of their home’s future improved value (value after repairs/renovations are complete) up to a total of $150,000 in repair costs. Max loan amount is subject to County FHA Maximum limits.
FHA 203K Minimum Down Payment
The down payment on an FHA 203k purchase is a 2 step calculation:
Down Payment Calculation:
Step 1: Purchase Price + Cost of Repairs + Contingency = Total Cost to Borrower
Step 2: Total Cost to Borrower x 3.5% = Minimum Down Payment Required
Time Allowed to Complete Repairs
An FHA 203k loan allows up to 120 days for repairs to be completed. This time clock begins as soon as the FHA loan funds (both for refinances and purchases). Exceptions to the 120 day rule granted on a case by case basis.
