203K Loan History

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development, also known as (HUD) was created in 1965. HUD’s main mission is to increase availability of quality affordable housing that is also sustainable. Within HUD there is the Department of Federal Housing Administration, also known as FHA. FHA was created in 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression. At that time, homeownership rates was very low (approx. 40%), and the qualification terms for buyers were very difficult to satisfy. And those who could qualify were limited to mortgage loans of half the property’s value and repayment terms were limited to 3 to 5 years.

 FHA was essentially created to increase home ownership. It does so by providing mortgage insurance to its approved lenders. This mortgage insurance protects lenders against loss in the event that the borrow defaults on the mortgage. By allowing lenders to bear less risk encourages lenders to issue loans to qualified buyers. FHA was stimulated the economy by increasing home ownership and development. 
203k is the main loan program for rehabilitation and repair of single family homes. The 203K loan product is offered by FHA-approved lenders.
