Dear Valued Partner,

Expand your market and profitability by offering Sun West's FHA 203k product. With over thirty years of lending experience, Sun West is an expert in this product and has been originating and securitizing 203(k) loans nationwide since the early 90s.

The FHA 203(k) is HUD's primary program for rehabilitation of single family properties (1-4 Units). With the 203(k) Program, the Borrower gets just one Mortgage loan, at a long-term fixed (or adjustable) rate, to finance both the acquisition or refinance and the rehabilitation (repair or modernization) of the property.

Our depository institution partners, through the FHA 203(k) program, can meet their responsibilities under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).
