Is this condo FHA approved?

November 16, 2010

Is this condo FHA approved?  That is a popular question.  FHA offers a great mortgage loan program that allows the buyer to put down only 3.5% of the sales price.  So, it is a very popular program.  One condition is the condo must be FHA approved. (*note, the FHA loan can be used to buy condos, townhomes or single family homes)   There are several requirements a condo building or development must meet to become FHA approved.  And there is a list of the approved condos at https://entp.hud.gov/idapp/html/condlook.cfm

When searching this list, be sure to search different ways,  try the building name, then search using only the zip code.  I bring this up because sometimes the condo is FHA approved but not showing in your first search attempt.   If you have any questions, please contact me.  I work with a lot of FHA approved buyers and can help you, too.  I can save you time and money.

Be sure  your condo is FHA approved before going to see it in person, or getting your hopes up or writing any type of offer.  Because if it is not, it can be a lengthy process to get it approved.  And no one wants to get excited about something then have it pulled out from underneath you.
