They can sell anytime they want to. There is no pre-payment penalties with FHA. The Lender may get ticked but oh well, they can sell now and buy again. Let me know if they or any other of your clients need mortgage assistance. I specialize in Under 640 Fico Score Loans. I offer the CHF Access half percent down payment program with a minimum 580 fico score. For clients with fico between 500-579 qualifies for FHA with 10% down payment. I assist Agents through out CA.
I offer 203k, HomePath, USDA Rural, VA, Cal-Vet, and many more. I also have an FHA loan for NO FICO score clients with alternative credit. Good luck.
