FHA Loans and VA Loans Cost Home Buyers Collier Swecker video blogs about how FHA home loans and VA home loan programs for home buyers often sound great because of little or no down payment but what home buyers do not realize is that FHA loans and VA loans have upfront fees and costs that exceed 2% of the total borrowed amount. These upfront costs do not go towards equity and if the buyer spent just a little bit more the entire amount in a conventional loan would go to equity in the property. Also keep in mind that with FHA loans, PMI stays on for the life of the loan. It only takes 5% of the purchase price to get a conventional loan vs. the 3.5% FHA / 0% VA.
