FHA First Time Buyer Loan

The FHA Loan Program is an excellent source of financing for first time home buyers. The Loan features a low-cost (lowest in the nation) mortgage insurance and lowest rates on the market. The FHA loan when compared to other loans offers best and lowest rate.

In comparisons to the traditional 5% down Conventional Loan, the FHA loan offers a lower rate- and low mortgage insurance option, but it is also has a high loan limit. High County loan limits will allow FHA to enter jumbo markets. The cost of living is high, more so near primary markets and the FHFA administration increased limits for Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac (the purchasers of your FHA Loan). If you are interested in buying and using an FHA loan, we can help! 

Who qualifies for an FHA Loan? 

W2 Borrowers

If you have W2 wage income for two years work history with the same employer, you qualify for this home loan. If you have been in the same line of work for more than two years and recently switched up employers, you still qualify for this loan. If you are an executive with limited down payment, less than 20% down, you qualify for this loan. Traditionally, the FHA was used for lower income households but now, low income is $85,000-$125,000 in certain markets with specific household sizes. 

Self Employed Borrowers

Self Employed borrowers qualify to buy a home with this loan. The FHA loan requires that self-employed borrowers provide two years of tax returns and a profit and loss statement from your CPA. Usually, the profit and loss will be on the tax return, but if financially and legally structed under a corporation- the profit and loss would come from the accountant. 

W2 Borrowers, Documents Needed

  • W2, 2 Most Recent Years
  • Personal Tax Returns, 2 most Recent Years  
  • 2 Most Recent Paystubs
  • 2 Months Bank Statement 
  • 2 Months Sourcing of Down Payment
  • Drivers License

Self Employed Borrowers, Documents Needed: 

  • Same as above
  • Personal Tax Returns, 2 most Recent Years  
  • Business Tax Returns, 2 Most Recent Years
  • Profit Loss Statement, Balance Sheet (Enough information to conduct a liquidity test) 

How much income do I need to qualify for an FHA Loan? 

The question varies for everyone, as everyone has different incomes. Let's take a couple that works together, and they are looking at a home valued at $950,000 in a high median market like Los Angeles, CA. You need at least $164,500 in income to qualify, assuming you have around $1,700 in monthly debt.

What if you have zero debt and want a $950,000 home. Perhaps it's closer to work and more expensive near there, let's call this market Burbank, CA- and you work near the Studios in Finance, you've saved- you have been remote for the last three years, and now your ready to buy a home. You've paid off all your debt, so you have zero debt, in this case you'll need at least $129,000 to qualify for an FHA loan. Now, this means that at $950,000 you qualify for the loan.
