In an effort to bring the Federal Housing Administration's reserves above the mandated 2% minimum, HUD's Secretary Shaun Donovan requested authority - from Congress last week - to tighten its FHA Requirements.
Although final numbers have yet to worked out, HUD is considering:
- Increasing down payment from 3.5% to 5%.
- Reducing maximum seller concessions from 6% to 3% and
- Raising minimum FICO score from 500 to 620
HUD may soon tighten FHA Requirements... What are your thoughts on this?
