If I knew which condo, I could give you more information, but generally, the condo complex has to be approved for FHA related loans. There are alternatives for financing even if not approved and several local lenders have programs specifically for condo purchases. Let me know how to contact you and I'll give you some contacts to call.

In Newport RI are you working with an experienced Buyers Agent? Free to you paid by the Seller if listed with a brokerage....

Do not try to figure this all out by yourself, it is not always just the price, Your Realtor will get you a market evaluation, once you decide on a specific property, i.e. compare those recently sold to the one you are interested in, talk about those competing on the market to see a trend in asking price, and
will then guide you through all the various important steps of the buying process, inspection, loan approval, negotiations of price and terms yes terms are important not just the price, and just make sure that he or she pays attention to every detail to lead to a satisfactory and happy closing.

Hi Janice, Financing a condominium can be difficult but not impossible. The square footage of that condo should not make it ineligible for financing. Typically condos under 500 square feet can be difficult. The condo complex itself will need to be approved. The association will need to be strong, have some reserves and have owners' dues up to date. There are local lenders who are seasoned at getting condo associations approved for financing. I'd be happy to offer you some local lenders who may be able to help if you'd like to contact me. I can be reached at
