In today’s economy, it is often hard for buyers to come up with the additional money for closing costs and/or sellers are not willing to pay some or all of buyer’s closing costs to buy residential real estate. Thus, I have been provided with an example of FHA versus Conventional Loans (with and without closing costs) for one of my listings (located at 1617 Marsh Wood Drive, Seffner, Florida):
As demonstrated in the above exhibit, the cost to roll in the additional costs for either a Conventional or FHA loan is nominal over a 30 year term. With the new FHA rules that require mortgage insurance over the entire term regardless of loan-to-value, a conventional loan is a home buyer’s best option (if they can qualify for it). FHA still is the easiest to qualify for.
The following are some pictures and a brief description of my listing located at 1617 Marsh Wood Drive, Seffner, FL 33584:
