No they are not, you have to get all of your questions answered and if you did not know about this before the offer was agreed upon, you may want to consult an attorney. Alsom go to the city offices check out the property there. Be sure of he facts before making your final decision.

Good luck

The FHA loan program was created to help increase homeownership. The FHA program makes buying a home easier and less expensive than other types of real estate mortgage home loan programs. Some highlights of the FHA loan program are:
• Minimal Down Payment and Closing Costs.
• Down payment less than 3% of Sales Price with 100% options.
• Gift for down payment and closing costs allowed.
• No reserves or required.
• FHA regulated closing costs.
• Seller can credit up to 6% of sales price towards buyers costs.
• Easier Credit Qualifying Guidelines such as:
• No minimum FICO score or credit score requirements.
• FHA will allow a home purchase 2 years after a Bankruptcy.
• FHA will allow a home purchase 3 years after a Foreclosure.
These advantages of the FHA loan program has made it one of the best options for most first time home buyers as well as move-up home buyers.
You do not have to be a first time buyer to obtain a FHA loan, anyone may use a FHA loan as long as you do not have more than one FHA insured loan at any one time.

The answer really depends on the property, the location of the property and the history of the property. Also, when doing further research it also depends on just how low you are able to obtain the property. If you can buy the property for less than 1.6 mil than of course the answer is no its not a good buy. When choosing a mortgage company be very careful and choose A plus money. ... more
