You can get a loan up to $280K to cover purchase price, closing costs and rehab costs if you have a credit score of atleast 660 and can document your income.

It is according to how much your bank will loan you.

I deal with three local banks. Two will loan 85% of purchase and 100% of improvements provided total of both is less than 85% of “as improved” appraisal.

The other bank will loan 85% of an “as improved” appraisal regardless of the purchase price and improvement cost. Therefore, no cash is required.

Im sure terms vary due to geographic area, specific lender, and borrower. I would shop around.
