FHA Loans

FHA Loan:

FHA mortgage loans are issued by federally qualified lenders and insured by the U.S. Federal Housing Authority, a division of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

FHA loans are an attractive option, especially for first-time homeowners:

  • Generally easier to qualify for than conventional loans.
  • Lower down payment requirements.
  • Cannot exceed statutory loan limits.

 
When purchasing a home in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin or anywhere else in Texas there are many hurdles that can get in your way. One of the biggest hurdles that I’ve seen is a potential home owner’s ability to generate enough money for a down payment. If a high down payment has stopped you from owning a home in the past, I have a solution that has worked for many home buyers.

The solution is an FHA loan. An FHA loan is a government sponsored home loan program created by the Federal Housing Administration with the idea of making a home ownership a reality for more people. Conventional home loan programs typically have down payments of 20%, however with an FHA loan that down payment is just 3.5%. When you compare the difference of what you would have to generate for a down payment for an average priced home in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin you can clearly see what a difference it can be:

City Average Home Price May 2013
Down Payment Of 20%
Down Payment Of
3.5%
Corpus Christi $108,300 $21,660 $3,790.50
San Antonio $159,900 $31,980 $5,596.50
Austin $285,000 $57,000 $9,975

As you can see the amounts the down payment for the FHA Loan is several thousand of dollars less.

Another huge advantage of an FHA loan is that financial requirements are not as strict as what you’d have with conventional loan. You will still need to have decent credit, but are not required to have perfect credit to qualify.

The rates with FHA loan tend to be a bit higher compared to conventional loans; however in many cases the mortgage payments that you’d pay with a FHA are lower then what you’d pay in rent for a similar home using a different loan program. This is a great program for anyone, but FHA Loans are especially popular with first time home buyers who may not have had the time to save enough for a 20% down payment and are still building their credit.

If you are wondering if a FHA is the right option for you to purchase a home let me help. Just give me a call and let me know a little about your situation, and I’ll get back to you with a free rate quote so you can see how much of a home you can purchase with a FHA loan.

John the Mortgage Man worked to get me and my wife into our first home this year! We had some issues with low funds, high debt and bad credit, but John helped us to determine how much we needed to save up to get in the home we wanted. Once we got there John was able to hook us up with a lender and get us a good deal on a loan. We closed in just over two weeks from the time we found a house that we wanted! John always made us feel at ease and answered any questions we had. Very knowledgeable, very responsive and very kind! Thank you John for everything! Highly recommend!!!read more

John made everything easy for the purchase. He had everything covered (all the associated costs, paperwork) that I needed to close. It was a pleasure to work with him again (this is my second time working with John) and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to finance a home.read more
