re: FHA loan and Rural Development


How long are you planning on staying in this house?

I just bought a house in BR so I couldn't qualify for RD. I had to choose between FHA and Conventional. I figured I was going to live in this house for 5 years and ran the numbers. FHA would have been a 6500 down payment with a 1225 monthly note. Conventional is a 9400 down payment with a 1050 monthly note. After running the numbers I decided to go ahead and put down more so I can save in the long run and have a lower monthly note.


TLDR: Estimate the time you will be living in the new house and run the numbers from there comparing down payments and monthly notes
