LenderSelect Announces Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation Loan

Richmond, VA (July 9, 2018) – LenderSelect Mortgage Group announced their community lenders will now be able to offer Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation loans. The loan is available to borrowers to finance the purchase or limited cash out refinance of a home and include the cost of repairs and improvements in a single mortgage. This could be a good option for your borrowers who want to buy a house and make the renovations necessary to turn it into their dream home.

“Fannie Mae’s HomeStyle renovation loan is a great option for any renovation project being considered.  While it does require better credit scores than some other programs, HomeStyle allows renovations on primary residences, second homes and investment properties with no limitations on what types of improvements can be financed,” said Senior Vice President of LenderSelect, Steve Bittner. “If mortgage insurance is required it is cancelable once the LTV drops below 80% and HomeStyle can also be used in conjunction with HomeReady for a 97% final loan.”

    • 97% for primary residences, 1 unit (LTV reduced for 2-4 units)
    • 75% for investment properties, 1 unit only
