Q: What is an FHA loan and how do I get one?
A: An FHA loan is typically designed around a 3.5 % Down payment. These are great loans because the credit guidelines are flexible and can usually close within 45 days. With an FHA loan, the borrower has less interest in the property (i.e. lower down payment), the government requires insurance on the mortgage.
One thing to be aware of when you have a FHA loan is the importance of the appraisal process. Having an appraisal done is a step the lender takes to ensure that their investment is sound. An appraiser for an FHA loan will look a bit more in depth at the property, make sure all updates are up to code.

"Tara is an excellent and very professional realtor . My husband and I were from out of state and she dedicated her time to help us look at houses when we were in Vancouver. She found the perfect hom e for our family. She respected our desires and did not push us into something we were not comfortable with purchasing. She helped us close on our house quickly and she did everything to make it as stress free as possible in this crazy market. She is very dedicated to her work and you can tell she is dedicated and focused on helping her clients find their next home. I highly recommend her as a realtor!!"
