FHA approved condos and townhomes in Sparks, Nevada

Condo For Sale

 There are plenty of amazing deals right now in the Sparks, Nevada condominium market.

However, with the recent turmoil in our housing industry, many financial institutions have tightened their lending guidelines and have made it difficult to obtain financing on condos.

It is important to remember that when considering to purchase a Sparks, Nevada Condo or Townhome with a FHA loan, these complexes must already be approved by the FHA and HUD.

 For a condo complex to be FHA approved, they have to meet specific requirements. These requirements are:

 

  •  At least 90% of the units must have been sold
  •  At least 51% are owner occupied
  •  No single entity may own more than 10% of the units
  •  If there are more than 30 total units, then no more than 10% of the units may have FHA financing
  •  If there are 30 or fewer total units, then no more than 30% of the units may have FHA financing

Hi Terrie:  We don't have very many FHA approved Condominium Projects here.   The reason they won't qualify for ANY financing is because the HOA's are all up side down!   Cash buyers are purchasing them up though.

We run into this a lot as well. Many buyers and even Realtors do not know that a project needs to be FHA approved.

wow - great info Terrie!    Pine Meadows sounds good to me, especially after reading about the 'mature landscaping'! Something about having established trees and plantings that just makes it feel more like home :)

Jane ~ We have many, many condo communities that are upside down in their HOA's as well. They is why it so important to make sure you do your homework before you  make any offers on condos or townhomes.

Craig, Gerry ~ Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Bill ~ I see a lot of listings in the MLS that have no mention of financing. It makes me wonder how much homework the agent did prior to listing the unit.
