FHA Loan Requirements in MD

Qualifying for a Maryland FHA loan is not hard. You only need to make a down payment of 3.5% of the total loan amount and have a credit score of at least 640. Ideally you want your scores at 660 or higher so you can qualify for the best rate and the lowest payment. But that will depend on your credit history and other outstanding factors, something that Moreira Team can gladly help you with.

Other than a good credit score and down payment requirements, Maryland FHA loans also have fairly low-interest rates. In fact, the current market is more buyer-friendly than it has been in a long time. Plus the FHA allows sellers to pay up to 6% of the closing costs. Other loans have a maximum of 3%, so depending on how you negotiate with the seller, you can reduce the costs of your loan significantly.
