Am I Borrowing Too Much?

FHA Common Question #46

FHA guidelines are set up to help you get the amount you are qualified for and set up conditions to allow you to successfully buy an FHA home.

The FHA has many programs set up to assist you with getting into a good home at a fair price, but if you have doubts about your ability to pay, waiting and getting some housing counseling may be a safer bet. A delinquent loan affects your credit rating; waiting until you are sure to purchase a home does not hurt at all.
