FHA financing- it’s not just for first time buyers!

FHA financing is a great financing option today for those with lower credit scores and limited downpayment funds

                *FHA minimum credit score is 640

                *FHA minimum downpayment is 3.5% of sale price

                *maximum seller concession is 6% of sale price

                *entire downpayment can be gift funds from family member

                *FHA has a rehab loan product, the FHA 203k Loan that can be used for repairs to the property that are NOT structural- HVAC, Roof, Plumbing, Electrical, flooring, cabinets, countertops, windows, doors, siding, insulation-this can be used for          refinances too!

                *Buyer does not have to be first time buyer

                *non-occupant co-borrowers are allowed

                *maximum total debt to income ratio allowed is 50%

                *can be 2 years from the date of discharge if previous bankruptcy

                *can only have one FHA loan at a time

                *can do a cashout refinance up to 85% of current appraisal value


You’ll see for instance in Lorain county, the maximum loan limit is $271050- that allows for a maximum sale price of approximately $276000


Talmer Bank & Trust has several Direct Endorsed (DE) underwriters on staff to review & approve FHA loan applications-your loans are not sent out for approval!!
