Freddie Mac now offering Fixer-Upper Mortgage Product

Freddie Mac announced yesterday a new mortgage product that will allow borrowers to buy fixer-uppers and finance renovation costs with the same loan. Existing homeowners can use it to repair or improve their homes. This loan product also allows investors to purchase a single-family home and renovate it without living in it, but would require them to live in a 2-4 unit building. This product is more flexible than an FHA 203k in that it doesn’t require consultant approval. This is a great new option for neighborhoods such as Laney-Walker North Historic DistrictHarrisburg-West End Historic District, and Olde Town Neighborhood Association. Tag someone looking buy a fixer upper, or a mortgage broker that may be offering this new product!
