Absolutely not true. The FHA loan program is designed for everyone from single parents to individuals to multimillionaires. Your past home buying experience could consist of owning 20 investment properties, 5 primary residence or a single condominium. It doesn’t matter. If it’s your primary residence; and the loan meets the loan limits for your area; and the home meets the quality standards designed to protect home buyers; you can get approved without having to be a first time buyer.
