FHA scores again for home buyers

FHA Loans guaranteed by HUD are fast becoming the loan of choice again for first time homebuyers and also those buyers who do not want to put 5, 10 or 20% down payment on their new home (there is good reason to keep your assets in other areas, that will be another post, or call me to find out why). The FHA loan requires just 3% down payment. Sellers can contribute to down payment and closing costs as well, it just requires the use of one of our Down Payment Assistance programs to administer the transfer of funds. (HUD requirement). So an FHA Loan can be a 100% loan in that regard.

With Fannie & Freddie declaring many metro areas "Declining Markets" it is now harder to qualify (if at all) for low down payment loans from Fannie & Freddie in many markets. For instance, if you live in Riverside California, a widely recognized trouble spot for foreclosure activity, your maximum loan to value (LTV) with Fannie & Freddie is now 95%. But wait, there's more. Fannie & Freddie also limit the fico's that qualify for 95%, and add to the price.
That makes it difficult and expensive to go with a Fannie or Freddie low down payment loan.

So what? FHA is what. FHA doesn't ding you for a declining market, they still go to 97%.
FHA also doesn't have the FICO minimums that Fannie & Freddie do. It is not only easier to qualify, but more cost effective.
