PROPERTIES INTO DREAM HOMES WITH THE HOMESTYLE ® MORTGAGE
The Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation Mortgage is a single-close loan that allows borrowers to purchase a home that needs repairs, or refinance their existing home, and include the necessary funds for renovation in the loan balance. The loan amount is based on the “as-completed” value of the home.
