I am a government loan specialist. I was doing FHA loans when everyone else was promoting sub-prime loans because sub-prime was easier. I work with all phases of FHA, purchase and refinance. With the new FHA reverse mortgages coming on line and the FHA Secure for those that got in difficulty with sub-prime loans, this makes quite an arsenal. FHA loan limit in Lane County was raised (temporarily) to $343,750. Cash out refinances are available up to 85% loan to value.
I also offer the Streamline FHA 203K that is ideal for bank owned and foreclosed properties. It allows repairs to be done after closing. This is also good for purchase or refinance transactions. The FHA Reverse Mortgage will also be available for real estate purchase transactions.
I also highly promote VA loans for those that qualify. With the new requirements, this means that only 3 months active duty are required to qualify for an VA loan. These are available with no down payment up to $417,000. Cash out refinances are available up to 90% loan to value.
The only other true 100% purchase product at this time is the USDA Rural Guaranteed program. This is income and location driven. Give me a call and we can qualify your income and discuss areas this is available. Island County qualifies for this program. The USDA Rural Program is available to 100% financing for homes outside the urban growth boundries of Oregon and Washington's major cities.
I also like closing easy conforming loans as a change of pace. LOL
I also offer training for Realtors in several areas of mortgage lending. One of my most requested training is in FHA lending. My powerpoint and question and answer delivery has been very well received.
