Erica,

I can set up a custom search for you that will find homes that are accepting FHA offers. Most homes that are safe and sound can be financed using an FHA loan. However condominiums are different. The project has to be FHA approved in order to use that financing. This site may help you in your search as well http://www.yoursdps,info .

This site has information on FHA repossessions. http://www.hudhomestore.com/HudHome/Index.aspx Not all Realtors are approved to make offers on FHA repos,however I am approved to write offers on these homes.

This is the site I recommend for information on crimes. http://mapping.arjis.org i have found it to be helpful for my clients.

This one may also be of interest, especially if you have children. It is the Megan's Law site for Child Molesters. http://meganslaw.ca.gov

If I can be of any help please let me know,

For an updated list of FHA approved condos in San Diego checkout http://www.homebuyerwise.com/FHA-Approved-Condos/city/San-Diego-CA_2681. for 24/7 access. Unfortunately the HUD site is down in evenings and on weekends when people need it most. Most other sites have data that is out of date.

@Jerry Thank you for bringing attention to HUD Homes as they can be a great option for buyers...especially those utilizing FHA financing. Just a heads up though, HUD has very strict advertising guidelines that you may want to review real quick (see below).

Hi Erica,

With different types of FHA loans available, pretty much all 1-4 unit properties can be financed with an FHA loan regardless of their condition, if the loan amount is within the loan limits for the county the property is located.

The question then becomes is whether the seller is willing to accept an offer from a buyer using an FHA loan which most do.

As far as other types of property location information, there are plenty of agent's websites or agents themselves who can help you with that.

Best of luck to you.

Dear Erica,

When working with a Realtor you can find out from the printout of MLS if FHA is offered on that particular house.
Lots of your questions can be answered when working with a knowledgeable Realtor.

Good luck in your search.
