FHA Eligibility in connectMLS

Thanks to our friends at RatePlug, FHA eligibility indicators for all condos and townhomes can be found in connectMLS

You know why FHA approval is a real benefit to potential buyers:

  • Lower Down Payment
  • Easier Credit Qualifying
  • And down the road - easy refinancing and assumable FHA loan indicators

How will you see FHA eligibility in the system? Simply look for traffic light indicators on each condo or townhouse in the system:

  • Green Light - FHA Approved
  • Yellow Light - Property is conditionally approved, but certain criteria may not fit FHA loan approval
  • Red Light - Not FHA Approved
