Kentucky FHA Loan
What are Kentucky FHA Loans?
FHA stands for Federal Housing Authority. FHA Loans provide low-cost insured Home Mortgage Loans that suit a variety of purchasing options. Whether you’re buying a home or want to refinance your mortgage, FHA loans might be right for you. If you’re unsure about your credit rating, or have concerns about a down payment, FHA loans can give you piece of mind with super low closing costs and flexible payment options.

What factors determine if I am eligible for an FHA Loan in Kentucky?
To be eligible for FHA Mortgage Loans, your monthly housing costs (mortgage principal and interest, property taxes, and insurance) must meet a specified percentage of your gross monthly income. Your credit background will be fairly considered. You must be able to make a down payment, cover closing costs and have enough income to pay your monthly debt.

What is the maximum amount that I can borrow?
The maximum amount for an FHA Mortgage is determined by:

Maximum Loan Amount in Kentucky: The Maximum FHA Loan amount allowed for FHA Home Mortgages varies from county to county in Kentucky. The highest maximum FHA Home Loan right now in Kentucky is $271,050. The lowest maximum amount available in any county is $271,050. The lowest maximum amount available in any county is $285,000. To see what the limit is in the county in which you’re interested, please refer to the Kentucky FHA Loan Limit chart at the bottom of this page.

Maximum financing: In Kentucky, the maximum FHA financing will be 97.75% of the appraised value of the home or its selling price, whichever is lower.

How much money will I need for the down payment and closing costs?
Kentucky FHA loans require the home buyer to invest at least 3.5% of the sales price in cash for the down payment and closing costs. If the sales price is $100,000 for example, the home buyer must invest at least $3,500. However, the home buyer can use gifts from family, funds from local, state or government agencies, or other sources for the down payment.

What property types are allowed for FHA Loans in Kentucky?
While FHA Guidelines do require that the property be Owner Occupied (OO), they do allow you to purchase condos, planned unit developments, manufactured homes, and 1-4 family residences, in which the borrower intends to occupy one part of the multi-unit residence.

What types of refinance programs does FHA offer in Kentucky?
There are three main types of FHA Refinance loans available in KY.

FHA Rate/Term Refinance
The FHA Rate/Term Refinance is for borrowers who currently have a conventional fixed rate or ARM mortgage and wish to refinance into an FHA Mortgage. This program helps borrowers who wish to have a stable, fixed rate FHA Insured Loan.

Cash-Out Refinance
An FHA Cash Out Refinance is perfect for the homeowner who wants to access the equity that they have built up in their home. This program is beneficial to homeowners whose property has increased in value since it was purchased.

Streamline Refinance
The FHA Streamline Refinance is designed to lower the interest rate on a current FHA House Loan or convert a current FHA adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate. An FHA Streamline Refinance can be performed quickly and easily. It requires much less hassle and paperwork than a normal refinance including no appraisal, no qualifying debt ratios and no income verification.
