A Low Down Payment Option
Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are a great choice for buyers who don’t have a sizable down payment or for those who are still working on their credit score.1 Maximum loan amounts are determined by the property location.
Minimum 3.5% Down Payment
Lots of loans require up to a 20% down payment. These loans only require 3.5% down so you won’t have to wait as long to save and can buy your home sooner.
Seller Contribution of Up to 6%
The seller is allowed to contribute up to 6% of the value of the home toward your closing costs, saving you money.
Mortgage Insurance Required
Mortgage insurance is required on all FHA loans. This is insurance that protects the lender in the event that you fall behind on your payments, allowing you to qualify for a loan that you might otherwise be unable to get.
|Term||Interest Rates As Low As||Discount Points||APR As Low As|
The interest rate above shows the option of purchasing discount points to lower a loan's interest rate and monthly payment. One point amounts to 1% of the loan amount and is paid at closing. Points don't always have to be round numbers. Purchasing 1.5 points would cost $3,000 on a $200,000 mortgage.
