FHA

If you’re a first-time homebuyer and your credit score isn’t great, an FHA loan may be a great option for you. FHA loans allow for as little as 3.5% down and have options available for buyers with credit scores as low as 600.

Things to Consider

DTI Ratio

DTI (debt-to-income) ratio is the percentage of your gross monthly income that goes toward paying your monthly debts.To qualify for a mortgage, lenders typically require that you have a debt-to-income ratio of “43/49.” This means that no more than 43% of your total monthly income (from all sources, before taxes) can go toward your new mortgage payment, and no more than 49.99% of your monthly income can go toward your total monthly debt (including your new mortgage payment).


If you find your DTI ratio is on the high side, you may want to work on decreasing it long before applying for a mortgage.

Certain sources of Income may not be used in calculating DTI ratio.

Credit Score

A measure of creditworthiness of an individual, FICO scores are widely used by most lenders in their credit decision.

If your bank, credit card issuer, auto lender or mortgage servicer participates in FICO® Score Open Access, you can see your FICO® Scores, along with the top factors affecting your scores, for free.
The minimum credit score needed for most mortgages is typically around 620. However, government-backed mortgages like Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans typically have lower credit requirements than conventional fixed-rate loans and adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs).

Our Loan Officer can help you figure out what mortgage options would best fit your situation and lifestyle.





Down Payment

Your down payment plays an important role when you’re buying a home. A down payment is a percentage of your home’s purchase price that you pay up front when you close your home loan.

Lenders often look at the down payment amount as your investment in the home. Not only will it affect how much you’ll need to borrow, it can also influence:
1) Whether your lender will require you to pay for private mortgage insurance (PMI).
2) Your interest rate.

So how much of a down payment will you need to make? That depends on the purchase price of your home and your loan program. Different loan programs require different percentages, usually ranging from 5% to 20%.
Generally, down payment requirements are made with funds the borrower has saved or from a gifting donor.
