  • According to the rules, the borrower’s home must be a single-family residence, HUD-approved condo project, manufactured house that meets FHA requirements, or a two-to-four-unit building where they occupy one unit. Other considerations are: The home is the borrower’s principal residence and the borrower owns their home outright or has a low enough mortgage balance that they can pay it off with the loan proceeds.
