The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal organization in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with safety with mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income consumers benefit from an FHA-secured financial transaction; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and requirements for lending organizations that they otherwise would not.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. The loan programs that the FHA offers are exceedingly beneficial to buyers with less starting capital.
