Your best source of information on this topic could likely be found at HUD official website www.hud.gov or www.fha.gov. Even if fha will insure a low loan amount doesn't mean that a bank or mortgage company will do the same as low loan amounts are very costly to a lender.

FHA does not have a minimum, however lenders do.. Because of the current laws, a lender can only charge you up to 5% of the loan amount in total origination fees.. so on a $30K loan, the most they can make is $1500, and that doesn't even cover most underwriting and processing fees.. so most lenders have a minimum loan amount of $50K.. Banks on the other hand are not bound by this law.. so they can charge you whatever they need to make the deal profitable.. (Probably one more reason to stay away from the "Big Banks").. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona.

The answer depends on your area. Most Mortgage Bankers or Mortgage Brokers will not do a loan for less than $50k. If you are looking for a real small loan, I'd refer you to a local Community Bank or Credit Union since they re governed by different rules and can do smaller loan. Good luck. ~ Bert Carpenter, The LoansA2z team of NOVA Home Loans ~ NMLS 40586 ~ www.LoansA2z.com 888-889-9950

It varies among lenders yet some will go as low as $30K with most at $50K, but again it varies.

There is no min. it really depends on the lender. Most won't go below $30k. If you need to go lower than that try your local credit union.

This will vary depending on the lender you use. We currently only lend down to 40k. I do know that some of the larger institutions have a lower limit

Anything below 50K, you will need to go to a Credit Union or a small loacal bank.
