With inventory low right now, what’s better? Buying a home you kind of like, or buying a home of your dreams? With a HomeStyle® (Fannie Mae) or 203k (FHA) renovation loan, it doesn’t matter if you purchase the mediocre property on the block, or in other words, like it a lot or a little. You can get a property in your price range and/or desired area you want, meanwhile the not-so-move-in-ready home quickly becomes the home of your dreams. A little renovation goes a long way, and the best part is every personal touch added makes the home truly your own!
