SC FHA Loan Size Limits

The Federal Housing Administration or FHA, announced the 2017 SC FHA loan size limits in all areas of each state.  Most of the SC FHA loan size limits increased from $271,050 to $275,650.  But there are some counties which have higher limits.  So make sure that you check these limits when considering an FHA loan.

Team Move frequently lends FHA loans throughout the Myrtle Beach and Horry County SC area.  Horry County’s FHA limit also increased to $275,650 for 2017.

FHA loans are known for flexible guidelines, affordable monthly payments, and low cash to close.  Many unknown, but valuable features include:

  1. Gift, down payment assistance, and other flexible down payment sources
  2. Up to 55% debt ratios allowed
  3. Non-occupying coborrowers
  4. As low as 600 credit scores
  5. Previous foreclosure, bankruptcy, or short sale allowed
  6. 1 year commission income often ok
  7. Seller paid costs up to 6% of sales price
  8. Low down payment condo loans
  9. Manufactured homes and modular home financing
  10. Renovation loans for home improvements

Keep in mind that the FHA funding fee of 1.75% of the loan amount is added on top of the base loan amount.  These limits are the base loan only so the FHA funding fee is allowed to be over these limits.

So if using an FHA loan, check out these limits.  Then compare your approximate loan amount with the corresponding FHA loan size limits.
