Help the community by answering this question:


I know of no restrictions to financing in Surfside.

There is plenty of money at 3.5% down on FHA loans and 5% down on conventional.

The 20% down restriction 'usually' applies to folks with sub 680 FICO scores.

Pleas feel free to contact me for any follow up questions!!!

I have not had a client buy a home at Surfside that had good credit have to put 20% down. It always depends on the lending company you are using.

You need to refer your question(s) to mortgage broker for loan approval and determine what works best for you AND confer with CPA

No you shouldn't have to put 20% down however you will have to talk to a lender and they will be the ones that will determine how much of a down payment you will need to have.

Your best bet is to meet with a local and trusted loan officer who can look at your credit and financials and see what programs are available. They can also break down required down payments and closing costs.

It depends if it will be your main home or second home. It also depends on your lender.
