Do You Qualify?

FHA Loan Requirements

FHA loans are backed by the Federal Housing Administration and have different requirements from other mortgages. Check out if you qualify by reviewing what is required:

  • Minimum credit score of 500.

    We believe in second chances. Take advantage of an FHA loan as you work to rebuild your credit.

  • Minimum down payment of 3.5%.

    If you have a credit score of 580 or higher, expect to pay at least 3.5%. If your score is lower, a 10% down payment is required.
  • Debt-to-income ratio of 50% or less.

    Debt-to-income ratios are determined by adding all your monthly debt payments and dividing them by your gross monthly income.

  • Mortgage insurance is required.

    An upfront mortgage insurance premium and an annual mortgage insurance premium are required.

Refinance Rates That Save You More

You can count on saving when you refinance your mortgage when current mortgage rates and refinance rates are lower than what you are currently paying. Here are more ways refinancing can help:

  • Get more room in your monthly budget.
    • Refinancing your current mortgage to one with a longer term may help you reduce your monthly mortgage payment.
  • Pay off your mortgage faster.
    • Refinancing your existing mortgage into one with a shorter term could help you pay your home loan off faster.
  • Access your equity. 
    • Consolidate your debt or make improvements by using the equity (the difference between how much your home is worth and what you owe) you have built in your home.
