FHA offers one of the most attractive condo mortgage loans for borrowers in the United States. Condo loans cover town-houses, row homes and apartment like dwellings in some states and are insured by the Federal Housing Administration. If you have lost some of your appraised value in recent years, consider an underwater mortgage refinance.
Condominium Mortgages: The 203b program may also be accessed to finance a unit in a condominium. FHA has a number of requirements regarding the project and ultimately condo loans that are government insured. For example, the condo must be part of a project with at least 2-units and 50% of the units must be occupied by the property owner.
Seller concessions – Even with a FHA condo mortgage, sales concessions are limited to 6% of the sales price, or else they are treated as inducements to purchase which results in reduction of the 1st lien.
Sales concessions may include the following:
Discount points and origination fees
FHA rate buy downs
Closing cost assistance
Payment of condo fees
Down payment assistance
Our FHA lenders continue to extend several options for fixed rate terms.
