NEW YORK, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Parkview Developers and Halstead Property Development Marketing today announced that The 505 in Hell's Kitchen has been approved by the Federal Housing Administration's (FHA) mortgage program, which provides up to 96.5% financing towards the purchase of a new home.  

The 505 is one of two developments below 96th street and among only a handful in all of New York City that are both FHA approved and have immediate occupancy.  The 505 has also been approved for Fannie Mae backed loans since July 2009, giving buyers flexible options for financing.  The remaining residences at The 505 range in price and size, including studios starting at $425,000, one bedroom homes for $631,000, and two bedroom units at $955,000.  

"We are very pleased to be able to present such an attractive offer of FHA-backed mortgages to our buyers," said developer Ian Reisner, Managing Partner of Parkview Developers. "With FHA financing, qualified buyers have the ability to purchase a beautiful home at The 505.  This opportunity is not to be missed."

As the development's preferred lender, Bank of America played a significant role in gaining FHA approval for the development.  

FHA loans and financing through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have helped bolster the New York City real estate market and will continue to throughout 2010.  Benefits of FHA-backed loans include:

  • A low down payment
  • Easier qualifying
  • More flexible credit scores
  • Low monthly mortgage insurance
  • Down payment that can be gifted to the borrower
