What is the Down Payment Requirement for the FHA 203k Rehab Loan?

The Down payment requirement is the same as a regular FHA loan.  The borrower is required to put at least 3.5% of the purchase + cost of repairs down.  For example if the borrower is purchasing a home for $65,000 + $35,000 for repairs the borrower would be required to put $3,500 down.  The down payment can still be gifted from a family member or relative.

The 203k Rehab loan can help build Equity

I am currently working on 3 of these rehab loans.  Each one the borrowers are going to have a significant about of equity built in their new home.  The reason is because the borrowers are purchasing homes that are dilapidated in one way or the other.  The homes are structurally sound but need cosmetic help with some updating therefore the homes are significantly reduced in price because of the needed repairs.  Each of my borrowers will have at least $20,000 of equity after they finish their rehab loan.
