The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is secured by them. The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending organizations with security by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income homebuyers benefit from an FHA-secured financial transaction; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and necessities 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 incredibly helpful to buyers with less starting income.
