An FHA loan is a mortgage designed for low-to-moderate-income borrowers. Insured by the Federal Housing Administration, FHA loans require a lower minimum down payment and credit scores than many conventional loans.
As a fully licensed FHA Direct Endorsement Lender, we offer a wide variety of FHA loan products to meet your specific needs. AnnieMac Home Mortgage has helped thousands of families in need of affordable financing alternatives, and we would love to do the same for you.
For starters, you will need proof of income and employment, along with the pre-established means to cover a down payment and closing costs.
As of 2022, the FHA loan limits for most of the country are $420,680. That limit can go higher in counties where the housing costs tend to exceed the national average – up to $809,150 in some cases.
Your debt-to-income ratio (FHA loans require less than 43%) is all your monthly debt payments divided by your gross monthly income. Lenders use this number to predict your ability to manage monthly mortgage payments.
Mortgage insurance is an insurance policy that protects a mortgage lender or titleholder if the borrower defaults on payments, dies, or is unable to meet the contractual obligations of the mortgage. FHA borrowers may receive lower mortgage insurance rates than they would with other loan types.
You will also need to provide a down payment on the home. FHA loans allow for down payments as low as 3.5% of the cost of the property.
Unlike other loan types, property buyers with credit scores as low as 500 can qualify for an FHA loan. Mandatory down-payments can be set as low as 3.5% of the home’s cost, minimizing the need for available cash up-front. In addition to lower down-payments and interest rates, FHA borrowers can take advantage of unique benefits like Down Payment Assistance programs, Down Payment Gifts, and Up to 6% Seller Assist.
