For 2013, Congress has restored the higher FHA Loan Limits also known as Temporary High Balance or FHA Jumbo Loan Limits. These allow homebuyers to purchase homes in higher cost areas with as little as 3.5% down payment. The higher FHA Loan Limits also allow homeowners to refinance their non-FHA loans into safe, secure FHA loans up to 97.75% Loan to value, and can even help you consolidate your first and second mortgage in one loan with a 30 year fixed rate. VanDyk Mortgage allows you to consolidate a second mortgage or Home Equity Line of Credit into a FHA Loan without classifying it as cash out as long as the second is over 12 months old, or the Home Equity Line hasn’t been drawn upon in the last 12 months. We also allow Cash out Refinances up to 85% with our FHA Loans.
