CONVENTIONAL HOME-STYLE LOAN PROGRAM in Maryland, Washington DC, and VA

 
The Home-style renovation loan permits borrowers to include financing for home improvements in a purchase or re-finance transaction of an existing home all within one mortgage. The home-style mortgage provides a convenient way for borrowers to make renovations, repairs, or improvements, rather than a second mortgage, home equity line of credit, or other, more costly financing method.The minimum down payment is 5% down for conforming loan amounts (417,000) and minimum 10% down on high balance loan amounts (625,000). Renovation costs are limited to 50% of the “as completed” appraised value of the home. Renovation costs may include:

  • Labor and materials
  • Soft costs (architect fees, permits, licenses)
  • Contingency Reserve (10% of the cost of labor, materials, and soft costs for unforeseen extra costs in the renovation). The 10% contingency reserve is optional unless the property is a 2- to 4-unit home.
  • A payment reserve of up to six months PITI is permitted when the borrower must vacate the property during renovation. The amount can be financed in the loan amount if the value will support such financing. The reserve is allowed only for the period in which the property is uninhabitable due to the renovations.
  • A contingency reserve of 10% of the hard and soft renovation costs is required for two- to four-unit properties; the contingency reserve may be financed or it may be funded separately by the borrower
 
Eligible improvements are unlimited generally speaking-any type of attached home repair or improvement is acceptable. Adding a detached garage, finishing a basement, adding a 2nd floor are all examples of allowed improvements under the Home-Style loan program.

A licensed state general contractor is required on all renovation loan programs.
