FHA Loans Can Be A Great Option, But Find Out If It's Right For You

We'll Also Tell You How Much Home You Can Afford!

In a matter of days we were approved for an FHA loan
She gave me back the confidence that I had lost with all the other lenders and made this whole process so easy for us.

Luckily we found Julie
She simply would not take "no" for an answer from FHA and our prior bank and was very persistent in getting our loan approved.

I’ve used Julie’s services twice
...for FHA streamline refinance and refinance to covert my loan to conventional. She's on top of things and very understanding.

My hubby and I worked with Julie to purchase our first home and it was awesome
We actually screened a bunch of lenders before we decided to work with Julie, and we are really happy we did the research. Julie kept the process simple for us.    

THANK YOU JULIE AND TEAM for everything!
Julie not only gave us a great new rate, lower monthly payment but also the confidence that we were in great hands.

Julie is a ROCKSTAR!!!
This has been a positive experience from day one. Julie walked us through the process and was extremely communicative!


Approximately 40% of all home loans in the US are through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). FHA Loans are some of the easiest types of mortgage loans to qualify for because they require a low down payment and the borrower can have less-than-perfect credit.

2021 FHA Loan Requirements:

  • 500 to 579 FICO score requirement* and 10% down payment
    580 or above FICO score requirement with least a 3.5% downpayment
  • An appraisal must be done by an FHA approved appraiser
  • Mortgage insurance (MIP) usually around 0.85 percent of the loan amount annually
  • Steady employment with proven income with recent tax returns, W2’s, and paycheck stubs
  • Two years of employment at the same company
  • Must occupy the home as primary residence
  • At least 18 years of age

FHA Loan Advantages:

  • They are very popular for first-time home buyers because of their flexible qualifying guidelines and low down payments
  • Borrowers with credit scores as low as 500 can qualify for an FHA loan
  • Lower income borrowers are able to get approved for a home loan through the FHA due to the FHA allowing lenders more flexibility on debt to income ratios than conventional mortgages
  • Lower interest rates when compared with conventional loans, which can result in large net savings over the lifetime of a loan


  • Lower loan limits
  • Homes that need renovations do not qualify
  • Mortgage insurance is required and Mortgage insurance costs are higher upfront
  • More required paperwork
