FHA and First Time Buyer Loans
How do I get financing for a FHA Loan?
First of all, the FHA home loan is a mortgage home loan backed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It is a great finance tool for first time home buyers in Arkansas. FHA home loans are great options for the first time home buyers, and those with less than perfect credit. FHA loans guidelines are more forgiving on credit scores than conventional loans.
Since, the FHA loan is the most forgiving loan and FHA insures the loan for the lender it is a great loan option. First time buyers and riskier borrowers less of a risk for the lender. There are costs to the borrower when using this type of loan, but the opportunity typically out-weighs the costs.Borrowers still must be approved by the lender which follows a fixed set of regulations and guidelines. We are an approved FHA lender and can help first time home buyers in Arkansas with their first home loan.
What are some of the advantages of FHA home loans?
FHA loans make home ownership more available to a wider spectrum of home buyers. Advantage number one low down payment. You can obtain a new mortgage with as little as 3.5% down of the total purchase price. Advantage number 2 lower credit requirements. Scores can start as low as 600 for FHA loans. FHA loans help those who have declared bankruptcy and even foreclosure. Arkansas has its own standards for home appraisal and the home must meet FHA standards before the loan can be closed.
In addition, FHA loans require some repairs to be fixed prior to closing and paid for outside the mortgage loan. FHA loans allow the borrower’s debt to income ratio to be slightly higher than conventional loans. Every loan must meet debt to income ratios to qualify for a mortgage and FHA loans allow up to 50% debt to income ratios where conventional loans stop at 45%. If your credit is greater than 575 but below 600 give us a call we can utilize our rapid re-score program to help improve your FICO mid-score.
