  • The minimum credit score allowable is a 640. Lenders will pull a Tri-Merge credit report and use the middle score from the three credit bureaus to determine your credit score.
  • The down payment requirement is only 3.5% which is much lower than a conventional mortgage loan. FHA home buyers must pay the 3.5% from their own proceeds (checking or savings account).
  • Sellers can pay closing costs for the buyer. The Realtor representing you can negotiate with the seller to pay FHA closing costs up to 6%. The actual FHA closing costs are between 3% to 4% of the purchase price depending on the amount of the loan. The difference in seller concessions can be used to pay for discount points to buy down the interest rate.
  • The condition of the home must meet certain criteria for a FHA Low Down Payment Loan in Alexandria, Louisiana. The appraiser that the lender assigns will ensure that the property will meet these guidelines. This is done to protect you the home buyer and also the investor funding the loan. Myself and FHA will both recommend a home inspection from a state licensed home inspector to be performed in conjunction with the appraisal.
