Why are FHA Loans good for first-time buyers?

FHA loans are good for first-time homebuyers because they make owning a home possible for families that might not have a lot saved up yet or don’t have “perfect” credit. With low down payment options and typically lower interest rates than conventional loans, FHA loans are a great option for many first-time homebuyers.

When is it best to put more down on a FHA Loan?

Generally it’s not. Putting more down on a FHA loan does not generally improve the terms or interest rate. However, it does mildly improve the Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP).

On a 30-year Fixed Loan, there is a slight improvement if the borrower puts 5% (or more down) vs. the minimum required 3.5%.

On a 15-year Fixed Loan, there is a slight improvement if the borrower puts 10% (or more down) v the minimum required 3.5%.

What are my options for remodeling with a FHA Loan?

Network Funding offers the Limited FHA 203(k) mortgage program. This program allows for the financing of the remodel of a home, but it is limited in as far as the extent of the work, the timeline and the amount you can finance.
