Mortgages from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) have increased dramatically over the last two or three years - and there's a good reason. FHA loans are fully backed by the government and offer consumers who qualify the best of both worlds: low interest rates and low down payment requirements.
- Increased loan limits throughout the country
- As little as 3.5% down payment requirement
- Not typically credit-score driven
- Sellers may finance up to 6% of buyer's costs to close
- Allows many down-payment assistance programs, including gifts
- $7,500 tax credit is available for FHA loans for qualifying buyers
FHA Streamline Refinances
FHA has provided streamline refinances on insured mortgages for almost 30 years. The "streamline" refers only to the amount of documentation and underwriting that needs to be performed by the lender. If you have a qualifying FHA loan, a streamline refinance can help you lower your rate and requires:
- No income verification
- No bank account verification
- No minimum credit score
- No appraisal in most cases
FHA 203(k) Mortgages
Even if the home you have your eye on is a fixer-upper, the Federal Housing Administration's 203(k) loan program can help home buyers and homeowners afford to pay for and repair single family properties with a single loan (from $5,000 on up).
Normally, when you want to purchase a fixer-upper, you first have to secure financing to buy the home, then secure additional financing to repair the home. These short-term loans can be expensive and difficult to obtain. With an FHA 203(k) loan, the borrower can get just one mortgage loan to finance both the acquisition and the rehabilitation of the property, making this program ideal for purchasing foreclosed properties at major discounts.
These loans are a bit more complex, especially for first-time buyers and refinancers (there's also a "streamline" version of this program), but it's definitely a viable option if you're looking to make homeownership even more affordable.
Yes, the US Department of Agriculture is the same governmental agency that certifies the quality of the beef you buy. But it also has a mortgage program that supplies $16 billion in funding to Americans in what they call "rural" areas.
But don't be fooled by the "rural" part. You don't have to live on a farm or in the country to utilize this amazingly affordable program. In fact, there are a surprising number of qualifying areas in both large and small states and cities, so this is definitely an option that's worth investigating if you're looking to buy a home - and here's why:
- No down payment is required
- No monthly mortgage insurance
- Seller can pay 100% of the buyer's reasonable closing costs and prepaid expenses
- No reserves are required
If you or your spouse is a veteran, you might be eligible for a special mortgage from the Department of Veteran Affairs. In recognition of your valuable service and sacrifice to your country, the VA program is designed to help make housing opportunities affordable for eligible veterans, so take advantage of this program - you've earned it. VA mortgage benefits include:
- No down payment
- No monthly mortgage insurance
- Seller can pay any and all "reasonable" costs to close
- Funding Fees are not required for Veterans with disabilities
There are some important residential, marriage, and other qualifications that need to be considered, so talk to your mortgage professional for more information on VA mortgages and any of the programs mentioned on this website.
