The amount a buyer offers on a property should be based on how badly the buyer actually wants the property. In the end, the only thing we know for sure is that if you offer the full asking price, most likely you will get the property. If you offer less than the asking price, anything can happen... but the bottom line is that the closer you are to the asking price, the more is the likely that you will get the property.

Think about how badly you want the property and then offer accordingly.

Rhonda Holt answered:
Hello, most buyers have debt when applying for an FHA loan or any loan. It just depends on they type of debt you have, how much it effected your credit score and how much it effects your monthly income.

If you have alot of judgments, many late payments, you're a co-signer on another property or you own another property with a substantial mortgage still owed, IRS debt, hefty student loans that you're currently paying or due to pay soon and big car payments then you may have qualification issues.

Now all of the things above can effect your credit and qualification for a loan, but before you try to decide on your own whether you qualify or not, simply speak to a professional mortgage lender or two. They will go over your entire financial profile, help you pay off debts and boost your score quickly if possible in order to see if you can meet the loan requirements.

Hi Marissa! I have a few apts in mind that could possibly fit within your budget. I would like to talk with you offline so that I could possibly learn more about you and your immediate needs. Apts in your price range usually come and go very fast. So you have to be ready to jump on the opportunity as soon as it presents itself. Good Luck! ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
You can't. When you purchase a house using FHA financing, you'll pay 1.75% in Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium which is typically included into the total financed loan amount, and you'll also have monthly mortgage insurance which can vary by the term and percentage of the house's value you're financing. No way to discount any of it on a initial purchase.

There are several fees associated with the loan process. Your single most significant fee is often the loan origination fee also referred to as points on the loan. It is best to work with a lender that will lend with minimal or no points. If you have any additional questions please contact me directly at 914-299-0420 ... more

Javier Meneses answered:
With any home loan in general, you'll have two main types of closing costs. One is lender related and the other is title related closing costs. These cover bank fees, appraisal, title insurance, recording charges, etc.

With an FHA mortgage, you also have what's called an Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium, which equals 1.75% of the loan amount. This is typically included in the total financed amount.

I strongly suggest you meet face-to-face with a Loan Officer and get pre-approved. Your Loan Officer can also provide a Good Faith Estimate which will breakdown all the estimated closing costs involved in your purchase. I'm always available to meet in our Brooklyn offices. Good luck!
