Even then, you need at least 5% down. Plus, you can do a FHA streamline refinance if interest rates drop.
FHA has temporarily raised the loan limit to $277,500 for single-family homes. But, itís expiring on December 31, 2008. Plus, the down payment requirement is being raised to 3.5% and seller-funded down payment assistance will no longer be allowed as of October 1, 2008.
