Candlewood Village Condos in Enfield, CT - Approved with FHA

This morning, we received notice from FHA that Candlewood Village Condominiums in Enfield, CT, is now on the FHA Approved Condominiums List.  FHA and CHFA financing options are now available for purchasing or refinancing the units in this condominium project.

Candlewood Village is a 112-unit condominium project located in a residential district off of Shaker Road roughly 1.5 miles to the East of Asnuntuck Community College.  It is a quick 5-minute drive to the shopping centers in Enfield or to I-91, 25 minutes to Hartford and 15 minutes to Springfield, MA.

There are currently 2 units for sale in the condominium.  One is located at 194 Woodside Crossing and is listed for $144,900.  The other is a HUD Home listed for $127,800 and is located at 24 Woodside Crossing.

In the project, there is one investor that owns 13% of the units making an approval with FHA a necessity.  FHA allows up to 50% of the units to be owned by one investor whereas Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac only allow one entity to own no more than 10% of the total number of units.  Before this approval with FHA, financing a unit in this project was nearly impossible.

In the town of Enfield, there are currently only 2 condominium projects approved with FHA which is a total of 136 units that are eligible for FHA financing.  We are in the process of assisting another project to obtain its approval with FHA which will add another 102 units.  This should be completed by the end of the month.

Eric getting condos FHA makes a lot of sense in many ways especially expanding the number of Buyer that will qualify to purchase.  More condo complexes need to go through the certification process, and hopefully 2014 will be the year many of them decide to do so.

Congratulations on another successful approval. I'm sure the owner in the complex will benefit from this approval. Keep up the great work!

George - it is so important to get approved with FHA.  If we keep spreading the word, 2014 will be a banner year for approvals.

Joe - thank you!  The most exciting part was before the approval, there were no typical financing options available here.
