This week, we've talked about the FHA 203k loan and it's benefits if you're buying a fixer-upper, or are planning to do repairs to your current home. Today, we take a look at the  FHA "Back To Work - Extenuating Circumstances" Program.


If you were a victim of the foreclosure era, the FHA would like for you to know that your chances of homeownership is not necessarily lost. The Back To Work program is a mortgage loan program available via the FHA which reduces the waiting period to purchase a home after bankruptcy, foreclosure, or short sale. Borrowers will still have to qualify for the program, by meeting standard FHA loan requirements, documenting prior financial hardship, re-establish a responsible credit history, and finally attend a brief homeowner counseling program.


If you've experienced any of the following financial difficulties, you may be FHA "Back To Work - Extenuating Circumstances" Program-eligible :

  • Pre-foreclosure sales

  • Short sales

  • Deed-in-lieu

  • Foreclosure

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy

  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy

  • Loan modification

  • Forbearance agreements

If you feel you, or someone you know can benefit from the FHA "Back To Work - Extenuating Circumstances" Program, give us a call! The Shields Team has experience with many home buying scenarios, and can help you  work through the process.
