FHA purchase



FHA purchase - FHA announced a set of policy changes to strengthen the FHA. The changes announced are the latest in a series of changes enacted in order to better position the FHA to manage its risk while continuing to support the nation’s housing market recovery.

FHA requires a minimum credit score of 500. There are no income limits like you may find with other 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 seller's 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 buyer 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 is allowed.

FHA requires a minimum down payment of 3.50% of the purchase price. The funds may be the borrower's own funds, a gift from a family member, rent credit or borrowed. FHA regulates some of the closing costs associated with a FHA loan.


Credit score - On January 20, 2010, FHA announced a new policy to address risk. FHA changed the minimum credit score for new borrowers.

  • FHA requirements new borrowers will now be required to have a minimum credit score of 580 to qualify for 3.5% down payment
