FHA Loans

About FHA Home Loans

An FHA loan is a mortgage loan that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). It was created to make loans more accessible and affordable to the public by offering reduced down payment options and lower minimum credit score limits.

FHA loans are federally backed and insured which reduces the lender's risk of loss should a borrower default on their mortgage payments. This is why FHA loans have more favorable terms and interest rates in comparison to conventional loans.

This is also why it’s easier to qualify for FHA loans. Overall, it’s a great option for borrowers who have a lower credit score, are carrying higher debt, had past bankruptcy, or borrowers who did not qualify for conventional loans.

Who is this loan for?

This type of loan can make buying a home easier as financial requirements are less stringent than in other loans. Individuals who cannot afford a traditional down payment of 20% or are unable to receive approval for private mortgage insurance find FHA loans a better choice.
