Buy or Refinance a Home With FHA Loans 

FHA loans require a 3.5% down payment, a minimum 640 credit score and the seller can pay up to 6% of the sales price toward your closing costs. Mortgage insurance is required and is calculated based on the amount of the down payment. Lenders are looking for twelve months of good payment history on items listed on your credit report.

FHA loans are a popular choice among homeowners and homebuyers because they offer lower down payment options and have more flexible credit standards than many other mortgage loan types.

This government-insured loan is guaranteed by the Federal Housing Association and is designed to make affordable homeownership accessible to millions of Americans. Homebuyers and homeowners who are interested in refinancing their mortgages can do so with an FHA loan product from Magnolia State Mortgage.

Types of FHA home loans include FHA streamline loans, which are designed to lower the interest rate and/or monthly payment of an existing FHA loan; FHA cash-out refinancing, which offers homeowners the ability to refinance their current mortgage (whether it be an FHA or other mortgage loan type) into an FHA loan while cashing out some of their built-up equity; and FHA purchase loans, which can be utilized to buy home.
