FHA loans have been helping people become homeowners since 1934. 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 get an FHA loan than a conventional loan.

FHA requires a minimum credit score of 500. There are no income limits like you may find with first time home buyer programs. However, there are limits on how much you can borrow.

  • 203(b) FHA purchase program provides mortgages for home buyers  to purchase a principal residence with a low down payment and with lower credit standards.
  • 203(k) FHA purchase program is for the rehabilitation and repair of single family properties. Providing both the financing to purchase a property and the financing to make repair. The program offers an important tool for expanding home ownership opportunities.
  • HUD $100 down payment program for borrowers purchasing single-family HUD Real Estate Owned (REO). The program is limited to owner-occupant buyers who have not purchased a HUD REO property within the last 24 months.
  • Lease with option to buy mortgage. Lease with option to buy allows a renter to buy the property they are renting. A lease option mortgage allows for sellers credit.
  • Gift of equity mortgage loan. A gift of equity is a transfer of ownership of a property to a family member or someone. Gift of equity down payment and gift funds requirements.

FHA allows a home buyer to make a down payment of 3.50% and a seller contribution of up to 6% for closing costs with only a 580 minimum credit score. First time home buyers with credit scores below 580 must make a minimum 10.0% down payment of the purchase price and a seller concession of up to 6% to pay for closing cost.
