The best person to answer that question would be a Local Mortgage Banker. I often hear from real estate agents that a home "won't qualify for FHA financing." Too often, these agents are misinformed about current FHA appraisal standards. In today's market, an FHA appraisal is essentially the same as Conventional Loan appraisal. FHA has specific Health And Safety Standards, but the idea that FHA appraisals are tougher on the property is lingering from a period over ten years ago when that was true. Speak with your Local Mortgage Banker to get the straight story about any given property and FHA appraisals.
Mortgage Bankers in your community will provide you with a much higher quality of service and financing options than any "Big Bank." Local Mortgage Bankers have long been the source of excellent financing options for homebuyers. Further, Loan Originators who work at Mortgage Banks are LICENSED whereas Loan Originators who work for the "Big Banks" are only REGISTERED. There's a BIG difference.
Sit down face to face with your Mortgage Banker to be thoroughly prequalified. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.
Consumers have been led to believe---thanks to huge advertising budgets with the BIG BANKS---that they should go to their bank for a mortgage loan. This is the WORST place to get assistance with the BIGGEST PURCHASE of your life! These BIG BANKS are basically BIG CORPORATIONS. You're a number, at best. With a Local Mortgage Banker you will be treated like a friend and a client for life. You can't imagine the high quality of personalized service you will receive from a Mortgage Banker until you try.
As to price---rate and fees---competitive if not better than the BIG BANKS.
