Things You Must Know About the FHA First Time Home Buyer Loan Program:
1. Low Credit Score:
First time home buyer loans are one of the best home loans for low FICO credit scores in Houston because of its minimum credit score requirements. If you have a Credit Score of 580 or higher you would be able to get a mortgage with just 3.5 percent down payment. For borrowers with credit scores between 500 and 579 at least 10 percent down payment is mandatory.
Home buyers under 500 credit scores are generally not eligible for FHA mortgage loans. FHA offers some concessions for applicants without credit history who are categorized under “nontraditional credit history” or “poor credit scores” and who meet other requirements. However such mortgage loan applications are treated on case by case basis and our mortgage experts will educate you on your eligibility with home loans for bad credit in Houston.
2. Down Payment Source:
There are no major restrictions on the source of your down payment. Besides your savings, FHA also allows to use other sources such as grants from a local or state down payment assistance programs or family gifts to facilitate home ownership.
3. Closing Costs:
Here too FHA offers you certain flexibility. Under the FHA loan program a home seller, lender or builder can share the burden of the borrower's closing costs. These include title expenses, origination charges, reserve requirements and other charges. Also you have the opportunity to include the closing costs with your mortgage and request the lender to increase the interest rate on the loan.
4. FHA Approved Lender:
The Federal Housing Administration is an insurer and not a lender. Therefore an applicant in need of an FHA mortgage loan program will need to apply thru approved lenders such as Clear Lending lenders. We maintain a license relationship with the best lenders securing our applicants request to be approved. The mortgage loan interest rate and its closing costs may vary between lenders. At Clear Lending, we will guide you to the best interest rate in Houston and in Texas offering you the absolutely best deal.
5. Banks vs. Mortgage Brokers:
Applying for an FHA First Time Home Buyer Mortgage Loan Program involves a lot of research. Banks and lenders follow varying underwriting standards with closing costs and/or its services also varying. Add to it the fact that you will have to provide new credit record each time working with Mortgage Brokers offers you many advantages. They just require one credit report which helps you retain high Credit Scores (multiple applications reduce Credit Score) and help you get the loan at the best interest rates.
6. Mortgage Insurance:
Two types of mortgage insurance premiums have been made mandatory by the FHA. First you must pay an upfront premium @ 1.75 percent of the loan amount. You must pay this when you get the loan and this can also be financed as a part of the loan amount. Second you must pay an annual premium which has to be paid monthly. This however varies depending on the borrowed amount, term of the loan and initial LTV (loan-to-value ratio)
Annual premiums Payable for FHA Loans:
Chargeable @ 0.7% for 15-year loan with down payment of less than 10%
Chargeable @ 0.45% for 15-year loan with down payment of 10 % or more.
Chargeable @ 0.85% for 30-year loan with down payment of less than 5%
Chargeable @ 0.8% for 30-year loan with down payment of 5% or more.

Joan was such a pleasure to work with! When Quicken denied my client's loan, Joan stepped in immediately and made every effort to make sure my client was approved. Joan was always available when I called. I am going to definitely refer him to future clients. Thanks Joan! It was a pleasure working with you.
Joan Gallardo, Elena, and the rest of the team at Clear Lending really impressed me from the beginning! They are the most honest, ethical, humble, and hardworking team I have ever come across. They are the true experts in the home mortgage/ lending industry. I met Joan after being jerked around by Quicken Loans for 2 months. Quicken tried to screw me over so bad with fees thinking I was not going to read any documents. They are pure scum! I was days away from closing when Quicken told me "Not everyone can afford a home". Then I called and spoke with Joan and within an hour, he told me that a home purchase was definitely doable. Being a first time home buyer, I was very nervous about the whole process, and more so having to go through it a second time. However, Joan worked tirelessly, like I've never seen before. He explained everything to me in detail and always answered when I called; something that is very important in my eyes. There was never any gimmicks, just truth. He was always optimistic even when I was down and feeling hopeless. The exceptional service that Joan and Clear Lending provided me was just beyond what words can explain. They definitely think of every single option before giving any glimpse of negativity. Clear Lending was able to get my debt to income approved and the bank to approve my loan; All in 1 month! One major hurdle that Joan assisted me with was with my employment. The day of my closing, I got word that I was laid off. I thought the deal was dead and I was going to lose all the money I had already put down. It was one of the worst possible things that could happen. I had given up! I had no hope! I could not close on that day, but Joan went as far as speaking with the bank, and seller's realtor to extend the contract. Once extended, I was blessed enough to find another job (same industry) the very next week and with a strong Verification of Employment, I was able to close on my home AND with a low interest rate that no one else can beat! I truly feel blessed to have worked with Joan and Clear Lending. Joan and the rest of the staff wholeheartedly care about their clients. I would not think twice about referring Joan and Clear Lending to anyone. I will forever remember the hard work and dedication Joan provided to me. With gratitude and so much appreciation, I want to thank everyone at Clear Lending. I am officially a home owner! And it's all because of your outstanding work ethic.
I just want to take some time and thank Edgar, Joan, & Elena for helping my husband and I get our first home! They are by far the greatest team! Thanks to them our home loan went fast and easy. Once again thank you!!!
