Hello Maria,
Your Realtor will be able to help you with the particulars of which homes will qualify for FHA financing. Some previous FHA requirements are more lenient now. For example, most FHA lenders do not require a stove to be in the home to qualify.
You should interview prospective agents to determine who you would like to help find your new home.

Your Realtor can tell you when they are searching the MLS as the listing will usually say if they are not accepting FHA offers.

The BEST way would be for you to find an agent you are comfortable with and have them help you as they will know the ins and outs of what properties will qualify for an FHA loan. Basically you need to make sure that the property has all of the necessities needed for a safe, habitable home. For example there can be no paint pealing off of the walls, there needs to be a furnace or heaters, water heater, kitchen stove, no broken windows, etc. If you are looking into condominiums, the HOA of that community will have to be on the list of approved HOAs. There are some other rules regarding investors who are selling or flipping homes, but for now those rules are suspended.

Good luck!

A real estate agent can supply you with email feeds of listings and do all the "homework" on a listing to determine if it ca go FHA.

Trulia or any other site will not display that info. For a sure thing, look for remodeled homes. 90% of investors are accepting FHA loans because they've owned the homes for more than 90 days. About 10-20% of the inventory is investor flip properties. With a small down program it's likely that you do not have a lot of savings. Purchasing a flip will prevent you from making any major repairs or spending a lot of time on deferred maintenance. Be sure you agent has some construction background so they can spot a poor remodel.
