Get a < 10% down conforming FHA loan with a 30-year term. Insist on an assumable loan for a subsequent buyer.

A 10% down, 30 year, FHA loan that's assumable?
Please let me know where you can get one of those.
(And I mean now, not where you got one in the 70s or 80s)
Perhaps the mortgage professionals will correct me - but my impression is that those don't exist - assumable mortgages are unusual for any 30y fixed.
If such a thing is available (and not much more costly than a regular 30y fixed), I'd be interested for myself
