Robert, Home Buyer in Philadelphia, PA

Re: Foreclosures

Asked by Robert, Philadelphia, PA Thu Apr 16, 2009

I have been pre-approved for an FHA approved loan and a first time homebuyer. Is it possible for a homebuyer like me to purchase a forclosure with an FHA loan (given the house meets their standards).

Hello Robert,

Yes it is possible however unlikely that you will find a foreclosure in good enough condition to go through the FHA appraisal. There is a loan...FHA203K...which is additional money placed in escrow to do repairs that need to be done. this might be something you want to discuss with your mortgage lender.

If you have any additional questions feel free to contact me at 610-999-7693.
