I had a mortgage in 2009 that was an FHA. I sold my house in 2016 as a short sale. I was able to pay off the original loan of $120,000. and the interest. I sold my house for $135,000. and was short late charges, refinance charges etc. I'm moving from Texas back to California. Can I qualify for a new loan there?

Have clean credit since ... need to sell and buy a new home prior to the 2-year FHA waiting period due to a hot sellers market.
Are there lenders who will handle a new loan for us prior to the 2-year requirement waiting period?

FHA Owner Occupancy Requirements

I am looking to purchase a multi-unit building on an FHA primary mortgage. The first property I am considering is a triplex with 2 units vacant, but move-in ready, and one unit that needs a small amount of refurb. I want to rent the vacant units right away (for cash-flow purposes). My question is, how long do I have to complete the refurb and move in?

The second property I am considering is another triplex, but is fully occupied. Could I purchase this building on an FHA and wait until a unit became vacant to move in myself; or would I have to evict one tenant? How long would I have to complete those actions?

Thank you for your help and guidance,

Don

In 2008 my wife and I both lost our jobs due to the housing crisis. We had a FHA loan at the time and tried to work with countywide to short sale. Over the following 5 year period we brought offers on the home that they would not approve. They final foreclosed on us in 2013 with a much less off on home from bank sale. We were told in 2013 that we would have to wait until 2016 to qualify for another FHA mortgage, however we have just been told we could not qualify for an other FHA mortgage until 2018? We are very confused. Please advise, Thank you

Last I checked I have to wait 4 years, but I read somewhere online that it has been reduced to 2 years. My mortgage company accepted less than the total amount owed back in December of 2013 and I was refinanced into an FHA loan. I have since gotten a streamline refinance to reduce my rate and mortgage insurance cost but am looking forward to getting out of the FHA mortgage into a conventional to eliminate the mortgage insurance since I now have more than 20% equity with the market value increasing in the Bay Area.

Our first and only home has an FHA mortgage, we are struggling with the mortgage and two years ago went through a modification on the loan. Its still FHA. so my question is if we sell or heaven forbid get into foreclosure, could we still be able to get another FHA loan for a cheaper house?

My husband and I have been looking around for a FHA mortgage lender. My husband has a special circumstance and would like to know if you would still be able to approve us for a loan. My husband’s credit score was 690 last time we checked a couple of weeks ago. I have a credit score of 580. I know from talking to Chase Bank that my husband would qualify for a conventional loan. I was interested in an FHA loan. My husband is currently not a US citizen or resident. He is lawfully present and has a work permit through Obama’s Deferred Action program. He makes $60,000/ year and has filed taxes every year with his social security number. I have been told through speaking with people that he can qualify for the FHA loan but banks are not required to give him a loan. I was looking for some guidance.
