The borrower needs a 580 credit score to qualify for the minimum down payment of 3.5%. With a credit score below 580, a minimum down payment of 10% is required.

Fixed-rate mortgages are the most common mortgage because they're stable. Typically the monthly mortgage payment remains the same for the entire term of the loan – whether it's a 15 year, 20 year or 30 year mortgage, allowing for predictability in your monthly housing costs.

What are the benefits of a fixed-rate mortgage?

  • Inflation protection.
    If interest rates increase, your mortgage and your mortgage payment won't be affected. This is especially helpful if you plan to own your home for 5 or more years.
  • Long-term planning.
    You know what your monthly mortgage expense will be for the entire term of your mortgage. This can help you plan for other expenses and long-term goals.
  • Low risk.
    You always know what your mortgage payment will be, regardless of the current interest rate. This is why fixed-rate mortgages are so popular with first-time buyers.

There are additional considerations to be aware of with fixed-rate mortgages:

  • Your mortgage interest rate won't go down, even if interest rates drop, unless you refinance your mortgage.
  • Because the interest rate may be higher than other types of loans such as adjustable-rate mortgages, you may not be able to qualify for as large a loan with a fixed-rate mortgage.
  • While your actual mortgage payment will not change, your total monthly payment can occasionally increase based on changes to your taxes and insurance. In many cases you can choose to pay these costs as part of your monthly payment through an escrow account that your lender keeps for you.

Today’s historically low interest rates make now the perfect time to purchase a new home or refinance.

One of the most popular types of mortgages is the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. This loan is usually the easiest to qualify for and provides the maximum interest deduction at tax time. The interest rate stays the same over the life of the loan which provides unchanging low monthly payments.

Minimum Credit Score of 500

FHA World Florida - Florida Mortgage Rates

Generally, a borrower who has made timely payments for the last 12 months serves as a guide and demonstrates their willingness to repay future credit obligations. New FHA Policy changes require minimum FICO score to be 580 for 85% loan-to-value. These FICO requirements went into effect in 2015. However, most individual lenders will still require credit scores higher than 640.

A perfect credit score is not needed for an FHA loan approval. In fact, even if you have had credit problems, such as a bankruptcy, it's easier for you to qualify for an FHA loan than a for a conventional loan. Sometimes scores down to 500 are accepted if there are compensating factors that offset the credit risk
