The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) – which is part of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been helping people become homeowners for over 70 years. Borrowers work with FHA approved lenders to secure loans that are insured by the FHA, allowing lenders to offer loans with lower down payments, lower closing costs, less paperwork, and lower credit restrictions.
San Diego branch of Sierra Pacific Mortgage is approved by the FHA to work with home buyers in San Diego seeking FHA home purchase loans. Contact our Mission Valley office, by email or call us at 619-894-8943.
FHA Home Buying Loans Give Buyers Options When Purchasing a Home
FHA loans can help reduce the down payment amount needed when buying a home. In some cases down payments can be as low as 3.5%. Another benefit is the ability to have most of the closing costs and fees included in the loan, saving thousands of dollars in up-front out-of-pocket fees. Rates can often be lower with FHA loans compared to non-FHA loans.
Some more details about FHA loans are:
- Not restricted to first-time borrowers
- Minimal down payment and closing costs
- Closing costs are regulated, lenders cannot charge more than standardized
- Some buyer’s costs can be credited by seller (up to 6%)
- Gift funds for down payments and closing costs are allowed
- No reserve savings are required
- FHA loans can be obtained 2 years after a bankruptcy or 3 years after a foreclosure
- High loan to value amounts
