    FHA is not first-time buyer program and I have no idea of why people think that it is.

    You cannot buy a home without any money in the'll have to have earnest money, some pre-paids. The only thing FHA allows you to do is to put down less than other programs, but you'll pay MIP to compensate for that.

    You can only have 1 FHA loan at a time, and it must be your primary residence.

    The statutory investment requirement for FHA loans is 3% at present. However, you can use gift funds or a grant from a non-profit or an approved 2nd mortgage for the 3% if you don't have it yourself.

    Yes, you can get an FHA loan again provided you don't owe the federal government for any debts (e.g. deficiency judgements, defaulted student loans, etc.).

    Good luck.

    Yes, you can get another FHA loan, assuming you qualify. FHA loans require a 3% down payment.
