Understanding FHA Loans & FHA Loan Requirements

What is a FHA Home Loan?

An FHA Loan in CT is a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) backed mortgage that has flexible requirements and often lower interest rates than conventional loans.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) – which is part of HUD – insures the loan, so a lender can offer you a better deal. This potentially offers lower down payments, lower closing costs, or qualifying easy credit.
Even if you have a low income and a low credit score you may still be eligible for a FHA loan, that’s the great part about them. There are even a few specific loans for those without a credit score. On the other hand if you have a good credit score, you may be able to start out with a low down payment or slightly lower interest rates.

Are There Beneficial FHA Loans For Seniors?

Yes. If you are 62 or older and live in your own home, own it outright or have a low loan balance, you can apply for a FHA Reverse Mortgage. This special mortgage allows you to convert a portion of your equity in the home into cash providing you an additional source of income as you grow older.

FHA Loans Requirements CT

In Connecticut, FHA loan requirements are the following:
● Stable employment with income for at least two years, ideally with the same employer● Good credit, or with a credit score lower than 580, must be able to make a down payment as high as 10%, and as little as 3.5%● No foreclosure on a property in the last 3 years● No bankruptcy in the past 2 years● One or zero 30-day grace period on late payments on credit report● FICO score greater than 500● Have a Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP)● Loan being taken out for a primary residence occupancy● Home meets minimum standards for appraisal

How to Apply for FHA Loan CT

Applying for an FHA Loan in CT begins with finding an FHA-approved mortgage lender who services the state of Connecticut. Then, you'll need to gather documentation that shows that you pass CT FHA Loan requirements (see above).
If you pass all CT FHA Loan requirements, then you are ready to apply. Prysma Lending Group specializes in CT FHA Loans and can help you get started today. Get started by applying for an FHA loan in CT at the top of this page.

What Are The Requirements For a FHA Loan?

Borrowers must have a steady employment history or worked for the same employer for the past two years.

● Borrowers must have a valid Social Security number, lawful residency in the U.S. and be of legal age to sign a mortgage in your state.

● Borrowers must pay a minimum down payment of 3.5 percent. The money can be gifted by a family member.

● New FHA loans are only available for primary residence occupancy.

● The property must meet certain minimum standards at appraisal. If the home you are purchasing does not meet these standards and a seller will not agree to the required repairs, your only option is to pay for the required repairs at closing (to be held in escrow until the repairs are complete).

FHA 203k Loan CT

When a property in Connecticut is in need of repairs, a 203k loan option can be a smart mortgage loan option. 
The main benefit of a 203k loan is that with just one loan, borrowers can purchase a "fixer-upper" and finance the repairs that need to be made. Additionally, down payments as low as 3.5% make 203k loans an attractive option.
Requirements for 203k loans in CT are outlined below:● Borrowers must be first time home owners, and have not owned a home in the past 3 years.
● Investment properties are not allowed. Borrowers must make this home their primary residence within 1 year.
● Total cost of home rehab must not be greater than the maximum loan amount outlined in the loan.
● Construction contracts must be made with a state-licensed construction company.
● The sales price of the home must be within the CHFA Sales Price Limits, and your gross income must be within the CHFA Income Limits.

FHA Loan Requirements

Learn about the requirements for applying for and obtaining an FHA loan in the state of Connecticut.

1. Stable employment with income for at least two years

Generally, you should be able to prove a stable income for at least two years to qualify for an FHA loan in Connecticut. Ideally, your income source is from a single employer, which is favored as a more reliable source of income.

2. Good credit

A credit score of over 580 in this case is generally considered a good credit score. Although not essential for qualifying for an FHA loan, a good credit score will certainly help. In cases where you have a lower credit score than 580, you should be able to place a larger down payment on the mortgage, as high as 10%. 

3. No foreclosure on a property in the last 3 years

FHA Loans are known to have a more flexible approach to mortgage loan requirements, but no matter what type of loan you are seeking to obtain, a recent foreclosure will always raise a concern with the loan provider.

4. No bankruptcy in the past 2 years

Similar to having experienced a foreclosure, bankruptcy can signal a concern especially for a government-backed mortgage loan like an FHA loan. If you've undergone bankruptcy in the past two years, you may want to consider postponing your search for a mortgage loan.

5. FICO score greater than 500

Like having a good credit score, having a FICO score above 500 will signal to the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) that you are financially sound and a reliable person to offer a loan to. As previously mentioned in this article, FHA loans are generally known for being flexible, so this number is less of a hard line and more of a guideline.
Don't know your FICO score? Sources like Experian allow you to check your FICO scorer free of charge in most cases.

6. Loan being taken out for a primary residence occupancy

FHA Loans are intended for people searching to buy a home as their primary residence of occupancy. While there are some caveats to this rule, and the guidelines change depending on state, it's generally a good rule of thumb that you should be applying for an FHA Loan with the intent to purchase a primary residence house.
