Changes coming to FHA cash investment requirements!

Have you been thinking about buying a home in the near future? You might want to do that sooner rather than later.

A friend of mine in the mortgage business told me today that there will soon be a change in the cash investment required for FHA loans.

Currently, a minimum 3 percent cash investment is required for FHA loans. Soon, that will change to 3.5 percent.

Borrowers will still be able to include some closing costs in the new 3.5 percent minimum cash investment.

He did not have a definite date for this change to take place, but he thinks it will be within the next few months.

He did say that he still has some conventional loan products that only require a 3 percent cash investment from the borrower.

If you have been thinking about buying, why wait any longer? An extra .5 percent only means an extra $500 due at closing per $100,000 borrowed, but why not use that money for something else?

Call me at 979-571-3553 or send an email to [email protected] to learn about what is currently available in the Bryan and College Station real estate market.

There’s never been a better time to buy!

  1. I think it is good when we have something to look forward to and work for it. I’m all in favor of 97% loans rather than 100%. I think it is good for us as individuals to work for something (save a down payment) rather than instant gratification (100% loan).

  2. Hey there, You’ve performed a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and for my part recommend to my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this site.

  3. It is essential for you to survey on financial institutions that can provide you with reasonable rates of
    interest to the low credit score quick unsecured loans.
    Quick personal payday advances are offered to all sorts of applicants
    like the one-man shop borrowers and low credit score holders at the same time.
    You don’twant to fax any papers for the lender and the cash comes to your account bythe overnight.
