Sam I have never heard of such a thing. What I would think is that a builder would feel more confident when a large down payment is involved. Likely a buyer using FHA will be putting down a minimum down payment. Buyer's choice either way. This is less of an issue when purchasing a quick delivery home or a spec that has already been built. The only other issue that may arise is the builder providing the necessary addendums that goes along with an FHA package. For your large volume builder's they will already have the necessary paperwork in place. If its a small builder who does spot lots then they may have a little more paperwork to process. Bottom line is in today's market being "quaified" is the key. If you'd like a good faith estimate feel free to call or email me. I'd be happy to assist.
