Sell More Homes with Government Loans--Why FHA is a great Alternative in today's Market: Upcoming Clock-Hour Class (3 Hrs.) for Puget Sound Realtors

Mortgage and Lending

Why are FHA Loans back in business after so many years of being on the back burner?

Bottom Line:  It's one of the most flexible mortgage loan programs still standing amongst the smoke of the Mortgage/Banking/Financial Meltdown.

Besides 3 hours of state approved continuing education, from this Clock-Hour Class you will glean the following nuggets:

  •  Life after Down Payment Assistance:  Is it 3% or 3.5% minimum down payment? Is there down payment assistance still available?


  • 22 Ways that Buyers can get their funds to close on a FHA loan


  • Seller contributions to closing costs:  3% or 6% maximum?


  • Is there truly no minimum FICO score required? What if a buyer has little or no credit?


  • Bankruptcy:  How long must a buyer wait?


  • Foreclosure:  How long must a buyer wait?


  • Can someone co-sign on a FHA loan?


  • Are FHA loans assumable? Does that still exist?


  • Manufactured Homes:  Are they still doing loans for these properties? What about single-wides?


  • Large parcel properties:  Is it possible in this market?


  • What is the maximum FHA loan amount for our area?


Now that the $7500 Tax Credit is available for first time home buyers who purchase a home between April 9, 2008 to July 1, 2009, don't miss out on the opportunity to help your clients achieve the American Dream of Homeownership.

Despite the financial crisis, qualified buyers are still out there, but we must know which loan programs will help them achieve this goal. FHA loans are perfect for the people who do qualify to buy in this market.
