Frequently Ask Questions

If you have a question that deals with clients, customers or the public in general, there is bound to be a need for the FAQ page.

Yes, you can pay off your FHA loan without a penalty for early pay off. HUD explains that a borrower may pre-pay an FHA mortgage in whole or in part and that the mortgage lender can't charge a penalty if you decide to do this.

A refinance occurs when the terms of an existing loan, such as interest rates, payment schedules, or other terms, are revised. Borrowers tend to refinance when interest rates fall. Refinancing involves the re-evaluation of a person or business's credit and repayment status.

We offer Refinance loan programs for those who want to leverage their existing real estate investment portfolio's equity to acquire additional assets in order to generate more recurring monthly cash flows without the hassle of providing income documentation that traditional mortgages may require. These loan options are for Professional Investors as well as First Time Investors that are looking to explore opportunities in real estate investment.

If you apply before you are ready, you risk loan approval. How? Borrowers should be prepared to come to the home loan process with no fewer than 12 consecutive months of on-time payments on all financial obligations.

  • The debt-to-income ratio is a tool the lender will use to determine if you are able to afford the home loan under FHA requirements and lender standards. Your income, minus your monthly financial obligations, are the basic debt ratio calculation.
  • HUD 4000.1, the FHA loan handbook, states that FICO scores will be an important factor in setting the DTI. For example, borrowers with FICO scores that fall into the FHA maximum financing range for the lowest down payment (580 or above according to FHA standards) would qualify for a debt ratio maximum of 43% (with mortgage expenses included in the ratio) with no compensating factors required.
  • Potential FHA borrowers with high debt ratios and other credit issues should work on those issues first before starting the FHA loan paperwork process or house hunting. The attention you give your credit and debt ratios today can get you much closer to FHA loan approval tomorrow.
