FHA loans have been helping people become homeowners since 1934. How do we do it? The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) ï¿½ which is part of HUD ï¿½ insures the loan, so your lender can offer you a better deal.
â€¢ Low down payments
â€¢ Low closing costs
â€¢ Easy credit qualifying
What does FHA have for you?
Buying your first home?
FHA might be just what you need. Your down payment can be as low as 3.5% of the purchase price, and most of your closing costs and fees can be included in the loan. Available on 1-4 unit properties.
Want a fixer-upper?
FHA has a loan that allows you to buy a home, fix it up, and include all the costs in one loan. Or, if you own a home that you want to re-model or repair, you can refinance what you owe and add the cost of repairs - all in one loan.
Financial help for seniors
Are you 62 or older? Do you live in your home? Do you own it outright or have a low loan balance? If you can answer "yes" to all of these questions, then the FHA Reverse Mortgage might be right for you. It lets you convert a portion of your equity into cash.
Want to make your home more energy efficient?
You can include the costs of energy improvements into an FHA Energy-Efficient Mortgage.
How about manufactured housing and mobile homes?
Yes, FHA has financing for mobile homes and factory-built housing. We have two loan products ï¿½ one for those who own the land that the home is on and another for mobile homes that are - or will be - located in mobile home parks.
Ask an FHA lender to tell you more about FHA loan products.

I have seen it done, but there are several things that need to happen in order for it to work. I know US Bank has been able to do this in the past, and Wells Fargo seems to be touch and go. I would contact a few lenders to see how it can be done. There may be a requirements regarding the purchase of the land 1st, but I know they've been able to tie both together.
