Limitations of a FHA 203K

An FHA 203k is intended for practical uses. It is not for making luxury additions to a home (i.e. a swimming pool). For that, a HomeStyle Renovation loan is a suitable alternative. If however there is an existing swimming pool which needs to be repaired, an FHA 203k loan can be used for that purpose.
