small brett pic Change Coming For FHA In December...

FHA is about to revert back to a minimum 90 day wait to finance a “flipped” house with an FHA loan.

FHA had waived this rule during the housing crisis in an attempt to boost home sales. For a while now there has been no minimum waiting period for an investor to purchase a home, fix it up, and then sell it to a home buyer at a higher price (on an FHA loan).

This 90 day waiting period will be re-instituted starting December 31, 2014.

Just wanted you to know!

That’s it for today!

Have a good day today! …and thanks for reading.

Hi Brett, Underwriters in my area have been requiring it all along so now I know they didn't have too. I have been telling my investors to expect it.

Brett:  I am with Debbie Reynolds on this one. Nothing at all changed in either of the markets I service; San Diego, nor Sarasota, FL.
