Hickory NC - every time I open my eyes, I see 203k projectsNo kidding. We are buying a home in Hickory, NC currently, and on the way to it and back, I see so many potential projects. What did I see today?1. A small commercial building for sale. A stand-alone small store for sale... yep, it is a potential 203k loan. Typically, a lender would require a 30-35% downpayment, but if you add residential use to the 2nd floor or maybe the 2nd and 3rd floor, you get a residential rental unit, a living unit for yourself, and a commercial property for only 3.5% down.2. A multitude of single-family homes, in need of repairs and some TLC, caught my eye. We're not talking about a handful, but a significant number, possibly 50-60, in need of attention. Some of these properties weren't even on the marke...

Can I use the FHA 203k program to build a garage?The short answer it "Yes you can". If there is no garage or if there is a one-car garage you can certainly add a garage with this program. The photo is one we did a few years ago. It can even be the only work done on a project if that is all that is needed. In this case they had a wood deck that also provided some protection as a carport underneath. So there was no garage. We had another one in NC in 2008 where the home was about a year old and had no garage, so the only work needed was a new two-car garage with automatic garage door opener. Clearly a good way to utilize the program. What you can't do is add a five car garage when you already have a two or three-car garage. We had one like that in Antioch years ago, the borrower collected...

NORTHVIEW HARBOUR: QUIET LIVING ON LAKE NORMAN’S WESTERN SHORE If peace and quiet in a lakefront setting is on your must-have list for house shopping then you might consider Northview Harbour in Sherrills Ford. Northview Harbour is the perfect place to call home if you want a truly low-key lifestyle but still desire a Lake Norman waterfront setting. The view from the patio of a beautiful Northview Harbour home that sold in 2015. The neighborhood is nestled into the quiet northwestern shore of Lake Norman and is a short drive from Mooresville, Statesville and Hickory. Metro Charlotte is about an hour’s drive (40 miles), so this is something to consider if you have to commute into Uptown on a daily basis. Still, if you are willing to make the drive in the name of a more quiet lifestyle th...
