mortgage loan preapproval is higher than cost of home, can you take the full amount and put it to repairs?

I want to know if I can take out the amount I was approved for, even though the home is less. We would like to put this extra money towards repairs and closing costs.

    No, you take sales amount minus your down payment. No cash, no closing costs can be included in the loan.

    No. No lender will give you more than what the house is appraised for, and most won’t even give you that. Nor would it be a wise financial decision for you.

    No it doesn’t work that way. But what you might ask your lender is can you take out a home equity loan in addition to your regular mortgage for that difference. Warning: careful that you can comfortably carry two mortgage loans.
