BigDaddyPin said:In PA, a house MUST have a oven/stove/range to get FHA loan.
It can't have any peeling paint either.
Unless the house is a total gut and going to be purchased by an investor with cash, the bank must get the property in FHA condition.
The most common repairs we typically do are repaint, install handrails, fix steps, install range. There are others but that is most common.
Our HUD's here are sold as is. Many are sold on a rehab loan. I would guess that 80% of the repos that sell here do NOT have appliances. I like sales cleans with no appliances as the kitchen takes the longest to clean........
