Want a Cost-Effective Energy-Saving Home?

Upgrade or remodel your home using an energy efficient mortgage.

An Energy Efficient Mortgage gives you an opportunity to refinance cost-effective, energy-saving measures as part of a single mortgage, whether you’re purchasing a new home or refinancing an existing home.

  • Helps the environment: an energy efficient home can help decrease your carbon footprint and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Potentially lower costs: after remodeling, you may have lower utility bills and may be eligible for an energy star tax credit.
  • May help with resale value: as energy costs increase, homes that are energy efficient become more attractive to potential buyers

If you are hiring a contractor to renovate your home or buying that fixer upper, the FHA 203K loan may be right for you. It lends you the money to purchase or renovate the home plus the extra money necessary to make the upgrades. The FHA 203K offers a low down payment and flexile fixed-rate terms.

PRMI’s FHA Construction One-Time Close loan gives the benefits of a FHA loan combined with construction and permanent loans (3.5% down and down to 620 credit score). It closes upfront before construction begins and there is no requalifying the borrower after the loan is closed.

Beneficial Features:

  • Low Down Payments- as little as 3.5% down will work in most instances, and 5% covers most others.
  • Higher Loan Amounts- In some areas, FHA maximums can exceed conventional loan limits.
  • Lower Total Cash to Close- Sellers can help pay closing costs, and borrowers can receive gift money toward their down payments.
  • Streamlined and Cash Out Refinancing- Subsequent refinancing can be far easier and more lenient than with conventional loans.
  • Purchase and Rehab Financing- Please see the FHA 203k loan and FHA Construction.
  • Of course, we’ll always fully assess your situation, educate you on available options and help guide you to financing that suits your needs.

It’s important to ask these three questions when you invest in real estate:

  1. How can I increase my rate of return?  The cornerstone of any smart investment strategy is to calculate your rate of return.  With real estate this is done by running the numbers using an internal rate of return (IRR) formula that takes into account:
    • Present Value (PV) – what am I paying out of pocket to get into this investment?
    • Term (N) – what’s my timeline and how long am I going to hold this investment?
    • Periodic Cash Flow (PMT) – what’s my monthly cash flow?
    • Future Value (FV) – what are my net proceeds (after expenses) when I sell the investment?
  2. How does my rate of return with real estate compare with other investment opportunities that may have less headaches?  When calculating your rate of return, make sure to account for:
    • Carrying costs (mortgage, taxes, insurance, maintenance, etc.)
    • Your time spent managing the property
    • Vacancy loss if you don’t find a tenant
  3. How can I reduce my risk?  You may want to consider these strategies to reduce your investment risk:
    • Increase your liability insurance in case something goes wrong and someone sues you
    • Consider a rent-to-own strategy where you find a tenant before you find a property
    • Consider mortgage strategies that result in more cash flow and/or better liquidity
