The only time one is able to go below 84% NET from what I've ever seen is when there is a partial claim that is required to get paid.

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on September 13, 2018 at 8:52am

Gurerry, let me rephrase that for you. You can get to a lower tier prior to the requested time period per the ATP by having a variance submitted. Here's an example: I've gotten 84% NET approved within 30 days of borrower being in the PFS program.

Comment by Guerry Clegg on September 13, 2018 at 6:49am

I'm confused. Why would you need a variance for 86 percent within the 30-60 day period when that's the required net for that period?

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on September 12, 2018 at 4:48pm

@Gregg depends if NET is being exceeded or not. It's possible to go straight to 86 or 84% tier within 30 days but you need a variance submitted.

Comment by Guerry Clegg on September 12, 2018 at 11:41am

That's good to know. The last time I tried they were completely rigid, but that has been a while. Our net was about 94 pct, which made it more frustrating. 

Comment by Alexis Adams on September 12, 2018 at 11:38am

It's hard to say as a general rule as I am sure it's case-by-case but I have seen HUD go below required net and allow concessions within the first 30 days. For example, a few weeks back I had a case with an FHA buyer where we were just shy of 86% immediately after the appraisal with 3% seller concession and HUD approved the variance. If you're going to go below 88%, I would just say never go below 84% bottom line and it doesn't hurt to have the servicer submit the variance to HUD and see what they say. HUD seems to be responding quicker as well so there isn't a huge wait time that I am seeing anymore.

So Brett and Alexis, it sounds like HUD has loosen their rule about the allowable/disallowable costs. Is that right? If so that's good to know. It still has to net 88 percent for the first 30 days, so that doesn't allow much wiggle room any way.

Reason why I ask is on my previous offer for the same property the bank only allowed 1% but it was a conventional offer. Now I have a fha offer and seller is asking 3% but its a fha offer. 

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on September 12, 2018 at 9:50am

3% is typically approved for FHA buyers if the minimum NET for investor is being exceeded. If you are asking for closing costs and obtaining conventional financing you likely will not be approved for any credits towards closing costs.

Al, I have gotten 3% of sale price approved many times for an FHA buyer. I suggest providing the buyer's side of the HUD/CD and also get a closing cost worksheet from the buyer's lender outlining all costs. This has helped in the past. I most recent had 3% concessions approved last week for an FHA buyer. Hope this helps.
