What is the best mortgage for buying a fixer-upper?I would like to buy a 1928 home in Staten Island. The home appears to have good bones, but still relies on oil for heating. It does not have central air. I would like to add geothermal to save on energy bills in the long run. What loan programs do you recommend for a purchase + renovation?
