Hello Brian, the rate and payment pencils out lower on FHA than conventional. Get a fee sheet on both programs to decide.
You may consider from 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score and from FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score.
Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice.
If you figure out which cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.
The purchase in 20019 zip code start from 75k for 2bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 239k for 3bd 1ba 816sf home.
