An FHA Purchase Loan Will Also Save You Money — Even if Your Credit History is Poor
If you are a Veteran but don’t qualify for Portsmouth Veteran mortgages, FHA loans may be the answer. A Portsmouth FHA mortgage can allow you to afford your own home – even if you’re a first time homebuyer or have less than perfect credit. With a Portsmouth FHA purchase loan, you’ll enjoy a small down payment (usually only 3.5%!) and an affordable interest rate. And if you already have an FHA loan, consider the benefits of an FHA refinance: even lower monthly payments!
