FHA changes may aid those who lost homes.

Kentucky FHA changes may aid those who lost homes

The Federal Housing Authority has shortened the mandatory waiting periods for an Kentucky  FHA-insured mortgage loan for those who have undergone foreclosure, deed-in-lieu, taken a short sale or declared bankruptcy during the economic recession.

 

Through its new program, Back to Work—Extenuating Circumstances, the waiting period for most borrowers is now just 12 months instead of the typical three, seven or 10 years. Both first-time and repeat home-buyers can apply. “Most people do not know this program has been released, and are only renting because

According to a letter sent to mortgage lenders, the FHA said it would offer mortgage insurance to borrowers who, during the recession, filed for bankruptcy or lost their homes through a foreclosure or short-sale proceeding.

The insurance is now available to those who can prove they are no longer financially compromised — and met all other FHA requirements.

FHA recognizes the hardships faced by these borrowers, and realizes that their credit histories may not fully reflect their true ability or propensity to repay a mortgage,” the letter says.

Besides the burden of proof on the borrower to demonstrate a recovery from the “economic event,” the potential homeowner must also complete housing counseling. This event would need to result in a minimum loss of 20% of the household income.

The FHA is requiring lenders to verify at least a year has passed since the foreclosure and the economic event is responsible for the loss of the home or bankruptcy.

Don’t Let a Short Sale Keep You From a New Mortgage | Consumer Information

Don’t Let a Short Sale Keep You From a New Mortgage | Consumer Information.

If you negotiated a short sale of your home, you may be surprised to learn that some mortgage loan underwriting systems can’t distinguish short sales from foreclosures on consumer reports. And that may keep or delay you from getting a new mortgage.

You see, borrowers who go through a foreclosure typically have to wait seven years before they’re eligible for a new mortgage. But short sellers may qualify in as little as two years. When you’re trying to buy a new home, an additional five years can seem like a lifetime. So is there anything you can do to improve your financial footing? You bet there is.

  • Get a letter from your lender confirming that your loan closed in a short sale, not a foreclosure. Send a copy of the letter to each of the nationwide credit reporting companies: EquifaxExperian, and TransUnion.
  • Order a copy of your credit report. Make sure the information is accurate. If you find a mistake, contact the credit reporting company and business providing the information to correct the error.
  • When you’re ready to buy another home, get pre-approved for a loan. A pre-approval letter from a lender shows that you are able to go through with a purchase. Pre-approval is not a final loan commitment; it means you met with a loan officer, your credit report was reviewed, and the lender believes you can qualify for a specific loan amount. This pre-approval process allows your lender to identify issues and errors in your credit report that may keep you from qualifying for a loan. That, in turn, allows you to correct inaccuracies before they can prevent you from buying another home.

  • You can ask for closing cost up to 3%

So you’re asking how do I find these homes.   As mentioned, only certain homes are available for the $100 down HUD program, so you need a Realtor that is knowledgeable about the program and has access to the bidding process.  The bidding process can be overwhelming unless you are working with the right people.  Call me today to get pre-approved and I can refer you to a Realtor in your area that can get you a home, with only $100 down.
