FHA Home Loan Basics:

Here is a quick and easy run down of what you need to qualify for an FHA home loan (purchase and refinance):

  • Ideally you’ll want a 620 or higher credit score. The FHA home loan program does allow for credit scores below that however some lenders will only go down to a 620 credit score.
  • You’ll need at least a 3.5% down payment (or equity if you are refinancing the current mortgage). The 3.5% can either come from your savings or it can be gifted to you from a family member.
  • The home needs to be your primary residence
  • The property can have a one to four unit home. If it’s a multi-unit property then you must live in one of the units.
  • FHA home loans comes with Mortgage Insurance (MI)
  • When doing a FHA home loan (purchase) you’ll need to have an appraisal done
  • If you are refinancing a current FHA mortgage into a new FHA mortgage then you may not need an appraisal.
