Thinking about purchasing a home in Wyoming? Consider an FHA Loan

Just what is the FHA?
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) was founded as a result of the Great Depression to aid the housing industry. The FHA continues to aid prospective home buyers who do not satisfy standard financing requirements, like having a credit history or proof of income.

Is there an income limitation with FHA mortgages?


Do I need to be a first time home buyer?

No, although many first time home buyers choose the FHA program because of the affordable down payment (3 1/2%) and seller paid settlement costs.

Do I qualify for an FHA home loan?

If you have a track record of paying the monthly bills on time and you do not currently have an FHA mortgage, there is a good chance you will be considered for an FHA loan. Only an approved FHA lender can determine whether you meet the requirements for an FHA mortgage loan.

Do I need a lot of cash to purchase a home with an FHA mortgage loan?

No. The FHA downpayment requirement is just 3.5%. For example, sales price = $100,000 X 3.5% = $3,500

Could my down payment be paid from gift money?

Yes! You can pay 100% of your down payment with grants from friends, relatives, or perhaps qualified organizations .

Is the seller allowed to pay my settlement costs?

Yes! The seller is permitted to pay as much as 6% of the purchase price to help with the closing fees.

Does the FHA originate the loan?

No. The FHA insures the mortgage loan. The Federal Housing Administration charges insurance on the mortgage loan. If a borrower defaults on a mortgage the FHA uses the money from these insurance premiums to compensate the loan provider. This is how the FHA encourages lenders to provide loans to otherwise higher-risk borrowers.

Is applying for an FHA mortgage loan very difficult?

Generally, it’s definitely not as hard as obtaining the traditional conventional loan.

You can get a Fixed Interest rate Mortgage, Variable Rate Loans, and Hybrid Mortgages

Yes! The FHA provides a streamline refinance loan program for homeowners who currently have a FHA mortgage and desire to refinance to lower interest rate.
