The minimum credit score for an FHA loan is 500.

Closing cost - FHA allows the seller to pay up to 6% of your closing cost.

If you are buying a $100,000.00 house FHA allows the seller to pay up to $6,000.00 for your closing cost. It must be in writing in the sales contract, "Seller will pay up to 6% of buyer's closing cost."

If you do not write it into the sales contract then you will be paying the closing cost. In the state of Florida closing cost for a $100,000.00 house average around $4,300.00 depending on taxes, insurance and who's paying the transfer tax and owner's title insurance.

By allowing the seller to pay for your closing cost you will decrease the amount of money required to buy a home. Buying a $100,000.00 property requires $3,500.00 down payment and if the seller pays up to $6,000.00 for your closing cost you will only need around $4,000.00 to buy a $100,000.00 in Florida.

Are you short funds to close? The FHA no closing cost loan allows all of your closing cost to be rolled into your loan including your appraisal fee, hazard insurance premium and even your escrow account.
