I think it would be hard and time consuming to switch lenders and apply for a loan all over again. I think I would miss out on the house if I did. Houses are going off the market almost the second they come on, and I noticed most are Fannie Mae houses. In my area that is...

FHA requires the home to be in decent condition and with a Fannie property, which was foreclosed, it may be a little on the rough side Fri, 31 Jan 2014 04:40:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Fannie-Mae-Question/525925/ 2014-01-31T04:40:00Z It shouldn't be an issue... ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Fannie-Mae-Question/525925/ It shouldn't be an issue... Just out of curiosity, why are you using an FHA loan?&nbsp; Qualifying for a Fannie Mae loan is almost just as easy so maybe your chosen lender doesn't offer both options?&nbsp; Try a direct lender that has EVERY loan option so you can react and overcome if you need to in a pinch.

However, one thing you need to keep in mind is that the home may not qualify for FHA financing. It is not uncommon for a foreclosure to have broken windows or tore down walls, missing appliances and/or fixtures. FHA is more strict on ensuring that the home is livable and safe (meets all the codes). I have helped clients finance a fannie mae homepath home with fha financing on a few different occasions.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Good Luck!
