There are many advantages to FHA home buying. With conventional lenders continuing to tighten their lending standards, it’s gotten very hard to qualify for a loan. Wilmington home purchase loans with FHA have much easier qualification criteria. You could get a house with only a 3% down payment (soon to be 3.5%) with a credit score of only 580.
Wilmington Home Buying with FHA Loans
Under a conventional loan, you would need a credit score of at least 700 to buy a home with less than 20% start-up equity and at least a 660 FICO credit score to get a home with a 20% down payment. You also get low fixed interest rates with FHA. And, you can always do a FHA streamline refinance if the interest rates drop. There’s no way you could get a home with 97 percent loan to value (LTV) under a conventional loan. So, fill out the free loan quote or call us today. We’ll be happy to help you.
