90 Day Flip Rule for FHA financing eased

The FHA regulation restricting FHA financing on homes that were "flipped" within the last 90 days has been mostly eliminated. Please read the FHA statement effective January 15, 2010. This will allow investors to buy homes through foreclosure, fix them up and sell them within as soon as possible - typically this process takes less than 90 days. There are still restrictions in place if the subsequent sales price is 20% higher than the acquisition price. That then requires additional lender review, a property inspection and market data justification of the new value. This seems fair - although still a bit "big brotherish".
