My daughter and son-in-law have a house they want to bid on but the outside siding has some peeling paint. I believe it is wood siding. Estimate $3000.00 to repainted. Will that disqualify them for a FHA loan? Credit scores are 800 plus. She's a nurse/mom and he has a job with USDA. Thank you.

That would depend on a variety of factors including the age of the home, state or local building code, etc. but the appraiser may, depending on conditions, recommend corrections rather than rejecting the property out of hand. Corrections are often recommended where the appraiser views the condition as reasonably able to be repaired. Lender standards or state law may also apply.

The current mortgage is an FHA loan, and the mortgage documents say that it is an assumable mortgage. How do I get this process started? Is it similar to refinancing? Will the property need to be appraised? I also need to know if it is possible to assume the mortgage, given that I now have one income, instead of two.

I sent over a copy of the transaction as I don't get paper statements mailed to me. Will a copy of the transaction suffice? I'm not comfortable sending over my bank statements. It wasn't necessary for another child's loan.

I'm trying to buy the perfect home for me for about $28,000. The seller's agent does not list this home as a Cash Only sale, but insists that she won't sell it any other way. This home has been listed for 280 days now. Why can't I buy this home with an FHA Loan?
