These include less strict credit requirements and qualifications, making this one of the easiest options for refinancing or purchasing a home. In short, FHA loans are easy and fast to qualify for, saving you money on your mortgage!
Austin Capital Mortgage works with clients in Austin, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and around the rest of the great state of Texas.
FHA loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration, and can be issued by banks or other agencies that are approved by the FHA.
Because these loans are insured, lenders have the ability to be more flexible with loan requirements. Additionally, FHA loans are often thought of as the most fast and convenient loan, with many first-time homebuyers opting for this option.
Payments and Options
Austin Capital Mortgage aims to provide clarity and keep our customers informed about the loans they are seeking out. Here’s a breakdown about FHA loan payments and options:
- Similar to a 15-year or 30-year fixed rate mortgage, FHA loans allow you to make payments at any time – without worrying about prepayment penalties.
- The FHA offers this loan with 30, 25, 20, and 15-year terms with fixed rates, meaning you will be able to pick the best option for you depending on how long you are planning to stay in your home. A 5-year adjustable rate option is also available.
What Are the Qualifications For an FHA Loan?
Comparing qualification requirements for a 30 or 15-year fixed rate loan and an FHA loan, is it clear to see that FHA requirements are much more flexible, allowing first-time home buyers access:
- Credit scores as low as 580 may qualify
- Refinance up to 97.75% of your primary home’s value
- Buy a home with as little as 3.5% down payment
