You’ll FLIP over the new FHA changes!

8 02 2010

Good news for investors, first-time homebuyers, and property flippers!

HUD waived the 90 day seasoning rule until Feb 1st, 2011 (unless extended.) This means that you can use FHA financing to buy a property bought less than 90 days earlier.  This will help many first-time homebuyers and help investors repair and sell foreclosed properties sooner. 

Here’s the quick details:

All transactions must be arms-length (you can’t buy a home from your relative), and there can be no identity of interest (you can’t operate as the buyer/seller and the realtor, appraiser, or lender).  If the new sale price is more than 20% more than what the seller acquired the property for, lenders will require a second appraisal and a home inspection. This is not for reverse mortgages.
