1 Presents FHA Introduction July 20, 2011

2 FHA Features 3.5% minimum down payment on purchase (96.5% LTV) Refinance rate and term max LTV is 97.75% Up to 85% LTV for cash out refinance. No $$ max for cash out. ALL down payment/cost can be gifted by family Can refinance from conventional to FHA FHA High Balance: max loan amount $729,750 subject to county limits. FHA to FHA refi (Streamline): no appraisal nor income qualification. **6% seller credit includes recurring and non-recurring closing costs. More lenient on foreclosure (3 year) or BK history (2 yr on CH 7, Chapter 13 BK must be 1 yr from filing, can remain open).** No need to worry about qualifying for mortgage insurance separately Available for BOTH first time homebuyers and CURRENT homeowners Low credit score pricing adjustments more attractive than conventional

3 A Perfect FHA Loan Borrower has limited funds for a down payment Loan has a high LTV Borrower has less than perfect credit Loan requires MI but borrower’s fico is too low for MI When DTI is over 41% (when MI is required) Source of down payment is a gift or community 2nd and borrower has less than 5% of own funds Non-occupying co-borrower qualifications are less restrictive than conventional 85% cash out

4 FHA may not be right when… Your loan is a second home or non-owner occupied Your condo is not FHA approved The LTV is below 80% The buyer already has an FHA loan (Unless met exceptions indicated in HUD Handbook) There is a non-borrowing spouse with a lot of debts (FHA requires debts be included in DTI in community property states)

5 FHA vs. Conventional Lower minimum down-payment of 3.5%. No appraisal required for FHA to FHA streamline refinance FHA Loss Mitigation Options Student loan deferment

6 FHA vs. Conventional High DTI compared to conventional loan. Fannie Mae now requires max DTI of 45% (back end). FHA can insure up to 45%(front)/55%(back) depending on AUS. Max DTI doesn’t change even on High Balance loans (may go up to 45%/50% depending on AUS). Family member can gift everything, including 3.5% down-payment requirement and ALL closing costs. Down-Payment Assistant Programs (DAP)

7 FHA vs. Conventional Seller can credit up to 6%** of ALL closing cost (recurring and non-recurring). That means seller can pay hazard insurance and tax impounds. Non-occupying co-borrower transactions do not have separate LTV/DTI restrictions on the occupying borrowers. (Unless the borrower has no credit history)
