Looking to purchase a second home with a FHA mortgage

Asked by Sassime40, Lehighton, PA Thu Nov 1, 2012

If I currently have a FHA loan on my home and wanted to purchase a second home for retirement is it possible to obtain a second FHA loan if I rent the first home? My primary home is a contemporary 3 level home with 3 sets of stairs about 7 seven stairs to each level. I have been diagnosed with rumatoid arthritis. It has become very difficult for me to go up and down the stairs so I am looking to purchase a home with only one level or just the bedrooms upstairs.

Help the community by answering this question:


The FHA mortgage programs are intended to promote home ownership for owner-occupants. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) prohibits using FHA financing to purchase investment property homes. There is a limited set of circumstances where a homeowner with an FHA mortgage is allowed to have a second FHA insured home loan.
