    On FHA how much do you need to put down to not pay MI. I had a bankruptcy that is 2 years old I kept my house but I want a vacation home using FHA is that possible.

    On a 30 year FHA loan, you have to pay 1.75% up-front mortgage insurance and 1.2 to 1.25% monthly mortgage insurance no matter how much you put down. This is a lot different than a Conventional loan where you can put 20% down to avoid PMI.

    Bankruptcies are a challenge and you generally have to wait 2 years on an FHA loan and 4 years on a Conventional loan to obtain a mortgage after having a past bankruptcy. Chapter 13 Bankruptcies are more lenient than Chapter 7’s.

    You can’t get an FHA loan against a 2nd home as they insure Primary Residences only. The minimum down payment on a Conventional 2nd home loan is 10% but excellent credit at that down payment is required.
