It seems the business changes daily. Here is some of the latest news. 2009 FHA loan Limits have been announced FHA loans generated in 2009 will have a maximum loan amount of $365,700. The rumor was they we going to go back to the $275,000, and they didn’t, which is very good. Remember, this is the maximum loan amount, not sales price. Also in 2009 the minimum down payment for FHA will rise from 3% to 3 ½%. 100% financing back??? I have a lender that has just announced they now offer financing up to 100% in the form of 2 loans. The 1st will be 92% of the sales price, the 2nd 8% of the sales price. There are many guidelines the borrower must meet, but it’s good to see there are more options opening up.
