We do Flips for you - Part 1 - FHA Flips OK

We do Flips for you - Part 1 - FHA Flips OK.  Our FHA Flip rule - 1 day owned by seller OK

We require one day of Seller seasoning for our FHA Loans. Yes, one day. While FHA has released guidance for lenders allowing the Flip Rule to be Waived for all Sellers until Feb 1, 2011, many lenders still require that sellers own a home for 90-180 days before it is eligible for their FHA Financing. We do not require these waiting periods for FHA Loans.

Seller Seasoning simply means how long the current owner has owned the property (as recorded on Title Records). Seller seasoning is also called Owner seasoning. The contract date must be after the date of acquisition for the seller, a redated contract is not allowable.

This is in complete alignment with the HUD guidelines for FHA Loans. The other lenders that have added restrictions are reducing the eligibility for Homebuyers to use FHA Loans to purchase homes from investors who may have purchased the home at a foreclosure auction, or direct from a bank. This opens the door for more homes to be eligible for safe, secure, and sound FHA financing. Many of these homes have been completely rehabilitated and reconditioned, making them a more desirable home to buy: they are Turn key homes.

Our FHA Rules can help you avoid the issue of FHA seller seasoning, FHA Flip Rules, and big bank rules that restrict access to quality FHA Loans.

There are some guidelines for FHA Flips under 90 days that will require some attention. If the home increased in price more than 20% from the sellers acquisition cost, the increase in price will need to be justified with renovation records, the sale must be arms-length (No Idendity of Interest between buyer and seller), multiple flipping within previous 12 months is a red flag, no assignment of contracts, property inspection may be required, and buyer's agent cannot be the seller of the home.
