The FHA 203k is a way to pay for repairs, renovations and home improvements, all within your monthly mortgage payment. It's an option that's great for first time home buyers because many times, that first house is a fixer-upper.

In other words, if you want an updated kitchen in your first home and it will cost about $5,000 then you'll only pay about another $30 a month on your mortgage. The additional bonus: because it's in your mortgage payment, you can reap tax break benefits!
