Why Borrowers Choose PRYSMA for fha
Prysma Lending went above and beyond to help me with my loan. It’s hard to rely on a good lender now a days, with all the big corporate banks out there. Prysma provided me with Amazing service. I have been using them for over 10 years and couldn’t be happier.
– S. Johnson
Highly recommend Prysma! They were very professional and went above and beyond my expectations! They kept me informed and answered all my questions. A special thanks for Debora and Mark for their effort, even during their vacation they worked and made my closing happened.
– M. Breda
Prysma cares about their clients and works hard to demonstrate that with each closing!

Understanding FHA loans
How do FHA loans work?
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) – which is part of HUD – insures the loan, so a lender can offer you a better deal. This potentially offers lower down payments, lower closing costs, or qualifying easy credit.
Even if you have a low income and a low credit score you may still be eligible for a FHA loan, that’s the great part about them. There are even a few specific loans for those without a credit score. On the other hand if you have a good credit score, you may be able to start out with a low down payment or slightly lower interest rates.
Are there beneficial FHA loan types for seniors?
Yes. If you are 62 or older and live in your own home, own it outright or have a low loan balance, you can apply for a FHA Reverse Mortgage. This special mortgage allows you to convert a portion of your equity in the home into cash providing you an additional source of income as you grow older.
What are the requirements for a FHA loan?
Borrowers must have a steady employment history or worked for the same employer for the past two years.
- Borrowers must have a valid Social Security number, lawful residency in the U.S. and be of legal age to sign a mortgage in your state.
- Borrowers must pay a minimum down payment of 3.5 percent. The money can be gifted by a family member.
- New FHA loans are only available for primary residence occupancy.
- The property must meet certain minimum standards at appraisal. If the home you are purchasing does not meet these standards and a seller will not agree to the required repairs, your only option is to pay for the required repairs at closing (to be held in escrow until the repairs are complete).
