I am into real estate investing and I plan on a cash out refinance for a rental condo. I want to know if the condo association is not FHA certified? I am concerned that I may lose a good deal on a rental that’s not FHA certified. Not going through with the loan and paying with cash is an option. TIA! by jonathan154 from Arizona City, Arizona.

Cannot tell you if the complex is FHA approved from this info. Also you cannot do a refinance with FHA if property is an investment(rental). It would have to be conventional.

You are wise to be looking at these concerns. If a condo complex is not eligible for FHA financing, that can limit the pool of buyers when it is time to sell. Having a home that is highly desirable (and attainable) allows you to extract maximum value when you go to sell. We can take a look at the local market and specifically if the property may (or may not) be FHA eligible. Reach out and I'll see if I can help you.
