It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to find FHA approved homes in the Downtown L.A. area. The status of FHA and VA approved buildings is a dynamic, constantly changing situation because the Federal Housing Administration has various strict requirements for its low down payment financing. For example, one community in Downtown recently lost their FHA approval because too many rental units are in their building. Alta lofts building temporarily lost FHA / VA approval because the number of FHA borrowers was maxed out at 50%. So, though today, a building may or may not be FHA approved, tomorrow your loan might not go through, or a lender can request the FHA to approve or re-approve a building. Unfortunately, buyers in Downtown and all of Angeles are not likely to find successful VA or FHA financing. They are having more success with a standard 5% down home loan.
Los Angeles is a booming market, thus sellers are looking for quick deals and large down payments. VA/FHA is slow and cumbersome, therefore not usually successful in today’s fast real estate market of Downtown and Los Angeles. Condominium homeowners associations today are simply not coming through with the very lengthy, complicated and demanding questionnaire required of them by the FHA and VA because the HOAs are not required by law to jump through all of the difficult and expensive hoops. Because it is currently not feasible to buy most Los Angeles condos with a VA/FHA loan, prospective VA and FHA Downtown home buyers likely need to chose between a FHA/VA financed single family home or loan for a condo in a less popular area than Los Angeles.
Often the best option currently is to buy a house or condo outside of Downtown, or to find some of the new loft developments around the area. New construction is more likely to offer VA / FHA programs for buyers.
For those who choose to hold out hope against all odds, the following Downtown loft and condo buildings have previously been approved for FHA / VA financing, so they could potentially offer a glimmer of some possibility of financing with zero to 3.5% down (but more likely will today require a more standard 5% down or more):
For those who really need zero down to 3.5% down, lofty houses and other single family homes will likely be more appropriate because there is no HOA questionnaire requirement.
