FHA high balance loan requirements

My wife and I are looking to find a mortgage for a home price of $475,000. We have enough money for a 7-8% down payment. Our credit scores are over 810. Is a 10% down payment required for an FHA high balance mortgage? by usr293745605 from Bronx, New York. 28 days ago Reply

3.5% is the minimum required down payment on the FHA high balance loan, butwith a 5% down payment you can pay slightly less mortgage insurance each month.With your credit scores who could have a very good alternative in a conventional loan with a 10% down payment, but if you need to stay at a 7% or so maximum down payment to go along with closing costs then the FHA high balance loan may be a good loan for you. When qualifying, my past FHA high balance borrowers, almost to a tee have gone for the 3.5% down payment to maintain that much more in reserves.

I can do this loan for you using conventional financing with a 5% downpayment. 1st mtg of $424,100, 2nd mtg of $27,150 & your 5% dp $23,750Closing cost are much better than with FHA & the pmi will fall off. I can also do this loan with no pmi doing 80% 1st mtg & 15% 2nd mtg.jcost@boemortgage.com 513-403-6260
