Some buyer’s agents may avoid promoting FHA 203k, as the commission associated with these types of deals tends to be slightly less. However, by introducing this loan as a solution, you provide greater value to your clients, and they know you have their best interests in mind. Picture your clients showing off their brand new kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc. to their family and friends. Naturally they will want the same, and they will have YOUR name at the top of the list when it’s their turn to buy.
We offer a variety of renovation loans to help your clients tackle the small projects, all the way to renovation projects in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. We provide consultation to your clients to help determine which renovation loan is best for them. The FHA 203k Home Renovation Loan simplifies home renovations by allowing your clients to borrow money for both their home purchase and improvement and repair costs using only one loan. In addition, eligible buyers can qualify for a down payment as low as 3.5%. This provides your clients the best opportunity to build their dream home with minimal money down.
Virtual Renovation & an HGTV Experience
When watching your favorite real estate shows have you ever wished that YOU could offer 21st century services like those agents? Imagine if you were able to provide your clientele with an “experience” rather than simply a service. With our help – YOU CAN!
Let’s face it, many homebuyers do not have terrific vision. If they don’t see it, they can’t imagine it. We can fix that. We help impress your clients by providing photorealistic Virtual Renovation renderings. We collaborate with agents like you and help design and, then, create 3D renderings to help homebuyers visualize the true potential of a space – Just like Chip & Joanna! Each rendering is unique and created using the actual dimensions of that existing space. Meaning, what one sees can be, and often is, built via a renovation.
That’s not all. Our team will also share the associated costs of a potential remodeling project in the form of a local contractor’s estimate. YOU, then, are able to provide your clients with VISION and the actual COSTS of what it would take to turn that vision into a reality. This allows your clients to make an informed decision where the end-result is a beautifully renovated space that’s customized to their specific tastes.
Change the Game
Millennials are not afraid to purchase a house in need of some work. In fact, 67% of young adult homebuyers are more than willing to put an offer down on a fixer-upper. Not all of them are handy enough to do those repairs themselves. For you, the real estate agent, this is a prime opportunity to become an industry influencer in the eyes of your clients while strongly differentiating yourself from your competitors. In a competitive market, agents need to differentiate themselves from their competition, this is how you do that.
Equity Makes a Difference
Just as helping to facilitate a buyer getting their dream home can lead to referrals, so does the fact that they will have instant equity in the home. In the video below, a buyer purchased a house in Boardman, Ohio for $39,000. They were able to completely renovate the house (exterior and interior) for $30,000 using the FHA 203k Home Renovation Loan, and the home was appraised at $79,000 post-renovation – giving them an immediate $10,000 in equity! Who do you think their friends and family are going to call when they are looking to move?
