FHA would consider this person a first time home buyer if the property was not deeded as Real Property. I suspect in this case the property was titled as a vehicle. If there is a HUD Plate on the Mobile Home and it is recorded as real property.. Then you would not be considered a first time home buyer. ... more

If you've missed payments and had a serious delinquency as long as five years ago that should not be a problem now. It sounds like you reestablished good credit with a decent credit score at 720. I don't think you'll have any problems getting a jumbo mortgage from the sounds of it, of course there are other things to check like cash reserves, debt ratios, and many other things. ... more

Hi Sharonw4211,

It depends on a couple of things.

Are going to live in the home as your primary residence? If not will it be a vacation home or a rental property?
If it's your primary residence then your down payment can range anywhere fro Zero to 5% but if it's a vacation home or a rental property the down payment requirements will range from 10 to 20% down.

It also depends on the type of home.
For example:
If it's a Coop or non-warrantable condo, the down payment requirements will be 20% or more even if it's your primary residence.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

It would be tough to get such a loan from a banks. You can try out a mortgage broker as they might take the help of other ways for getting the finance. If you get in touch with the right lender, then getting a loan, even if you a non-U.S. Citizen would be quite easy for you! ... more
