Can we buy a home in another state with an FHA loan?Hello everyone, My husband and I were wondering if it would be possible to purchase our first home in another state using a standard FHA loan? Or does it have to be owner-occupied immediately or within a certain time frame? If not are there other mortgage options that would not require a (huge) 20% down payment? Thank you in advance!March 16 2012 - Lake Highlands00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
