FHA Loans

FHA Loan

An FHA loan is a government program allowing you to purchase a home with a lower 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 a lower down payment and as low as a 550 credit score with a higher 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 Limited Rehab 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
  • Repair/Replace/Upgrade heating and cooling systems
  • Repair/Replace/Upgrade plumbing and electrical systems
  • Repair/Replace carpet and flooring
  • Minimal remodeling of kitchens and bathrooms (No structural repairs)
  • Painting (Interior/exterior)
  • Window/door replacements
  • Lead paint stabilization / abatement
  • Accessibility improvements for persons with disabilities

 

FHA 203K Standard Rehab 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. 

If refinancing your home, FHA allows a higher loan to value of your home’s value to pay-off existing mortgages and cover closing costs. Cash out for debt consolidation and home improvements is available at a lower loan to value of your home’s value.

 

USDA Rural Development

USDA Rural Guaranteed Home Loans allow you to purchase your new home without a down payment. Reasonable credit is required and does not always require reserves. It expands home ownership opportunities in rural areas.


VA Loan

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.  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.

  • Credit scores as low as 550 
  • Closing costs may be paid by the seller up to 4% of purchase price
  • No monthly mortgage insurance
