we offer FHA loans
"From beginning to end, PMG kept us informed every step of the way." - Bob & Katie K.
FHA loans allow you to make a down payment as low as 3.5%, as long as you have a credit score of 580 or better.
While PMG Home Loans will work face-to-face with you to help you secure an FHA mortgage loan, FHA loans are actually insured by the Federal Housing Administration.
This is because FHA loans are designed to allow first-time homebuyers who don’t have the credit or income necessary for a conventional loan to still secure a loan with a good interest rate.
One of the biggest selling points of FHA loans is that, with a credit score of 580 or higher, you can make a down payment of as little as 3.5%. Even buyers with credit scores as low as 500 can qualify for an FHA loan, and still only have to make a down payment of 10%. Compare that with the minimum credit score of 620 needed to qualify for a conventional loan!
Is an FHA loan the best option for you?
FHA loans are insured by the government. This means that there are some requirements which have to be met. But FHA mortgages are an excellent choice if you qualify. You can get a great fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan with an interest rate lower than you'll pay otherwise!
