FHA Loan

An FHA loan is a government program allowing you to purchase a home with as little as 3.5% down payment and allows the seller to pay up to 6% of your closing costs. Down payment assistance is allowed under the FHA program. FHA allows for a credit score as low as 580 with as little as 3.5% down payment and as low as a 550 credit score with 10% or more down payment. In some cases, we can work with building non-traditional credit with proof of your rental payments and alternative trade lines with no credit score.   

FHA 203K Streamline Loans allow for some improvements/repairs up to 35K to be completed by a licensed contractor after closing. The funds will be held in escrow until the work has been completed and would be released to the contractor in a draw at closing and the remainder upon verification of completed work after closing. Eligible repairs are listed below:

  • Repair/Replace roofs, gutters, down spouts

FHA 203K Full Loans are available for homes that need any structural repairs and/or improvements. A 203K HUD consultant will be hired to coordinate the work with the contractor.

FHA HUD home loans with as little as $100 down payment required are possibly available on a home that is currently owned by HUD.

If refinancing your home, FHA allows up to 97.75% of your home’s value to pay-off existing mortgages and cover closing costs. Cash out for debt consolidation and home improvements is available up to 85% of your home’s value.

A VA loan is guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and is available to eligible veterans and active duty military for the purchase of a new home or to refinance their current home. In most cases, there is no down payment required in a purchase transaction and provides 100% financing. The VA charges a funding fee to issue the guarantee to a lender against default on a mortgage. This fee may be upfront by the buyer or the seller or it may be financed into the loan amount.
