FHA refinance allows up to 97.75% loan-to-value.
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 credit score to be
580 for 97.75% loan-to-value and anyone refinancing with a score lower
than 580 will require 90% loan-to-value. These credit score requirements went into effect in the spring 2010. However, individual lenders will still
require credit score higher than 640. We don't.
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
Rate and Term Refinance
This is the lowest rate in over 50 years according to Freddie Mac. FHA has more flexible underwriting guidelines compared to conventional loans.
FHA Streamline Refinance
FHA streamline provides a way for current FHA homeowners to lower their interest rate with little or no out-of-pocket costs. These loans can also be made faster and with less documentation than a typical loan. "No Cost" Streamlines let you refinance your mortgage with no out-of-pocket expenses.
Cash Out Refinance
Cash out refinance allows homeowners to refinance their existing mortgage by taking out another mortgage for more than they currently owe, therefore repaying their current mortgage and using the equity they have built up in their home to take out another larger mortgage.
FHA allows cash out amount up to 85% of the value of the property.
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.
