We know that buying a home can be the single largest investment of a lifetime, and so we created The Road Home New Jersey to provide a roadmap for homebuyers to learn about the home purchase process as well as our available programs.
We are a financially self-supporting affiliate of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, and have helped more than 115,000 New Jersey residents become homeowners since 1967.
The FHA was created in 1934 to give renters in the U.S. better lending options for buying a home. Back then, a 50% down payment was common, which means you needed to earn enough income to pay off a mortgage in three to five years.
Homeowners with a current FHA loan may qualify to lower their payment with an FHA streamline refinance. You can skip the income documents and no home appraisal is required, making the process very easy.
You can buy or refinance a home and roll the renovation costs into one loan with the 203(k) mortgage program. You can choose the limited program for small projects (under $35,000), while the standard program gives you more cash for larger projects.
However, conventional loans allow you to finance second homes and investment properties, whereas you need to live in the home you finance with an FHA mortgage as a primary residence for at least 12 months. And you may even be eligible for an appraisal waiver if you buy a home with a conventional loan, while FHA purchase loans require a more detailed home appraisal.
