I agree with Mr. Burke, if you can qualify for a VA home loan (military background) then VA is better than FHA. It is easier to qualify for, 100% financing loan and no monthly PMI. The interest rates are the same. The appraisal requirements about the same. If you can go VA then it will be better in the long run. Go with a lender that knows the VA program and you can still get your loan closed in 30 days or less.
You might try Marcy Moore with Home Team Mortgage. 214-572-1565. HTM is registered for the Texas State Affordable Housing program which provides down payment assistance and other possible benefits for qualifying first time buyers. Good luck!
