Hi Mrs, Jetson,

Usually, the minimum down payment is 3.5% of the mortgage amount. However, in this instance, the house is a foreclosure and needs some repairs in order to qualify for an FHA loan. It still may be possible for the property to be repaired so that you could purchase it. But that would need to be worked out with the company that currently owns the property.

There are several different factors to consider and the best place to start is with a mortgage person! Let me know if that is what you would like to do.

Best regards,
Barbara Stanton

An FHA mortgage will require a 3.5% down payment. If you are interested in purchasing a home, then you first need to get Pre-Qualified. You can submit your Pre-Qualification request online at Once reviewed, this will let you know where you stand on your ability to purchase a home.

Dear Mrs. Jetson,

If you qualify for an FHA loan, you would only need to put 3.5% down. If you purchased this home for $45,000, that's only $1575. I will call you after 8am or feel free to call me before that and I will help you get pre-qualified. You can reach me at 251-459-4764.

I would love to help you purchase this home! I look forward to hearing from you. Parrish Walker
