FHA stands for the Federal Housing Administration, and is a federal organization within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA provides mortgage insurance for qualified buyers.
The lender provides all the money for the loan – the FHA simply insures the amount through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan.
FHA loan programs were created to help low-to-moderate income consumers by easing credit requirements for a new home purchase. Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. Purchasers with less starting capital to put down are helped by most FHA loan programs. The Federal Housing Administration retains a roster of approved appraisers for each state. We have Certified FHA Appraisers on staff ready to handle your FHA needs.
