Why and FHA Loan?
Home loans provided by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) may make it easier for you to buy a home. For an FHA loan a down payment of 3.5% is required. Borrowers who cannot afford a traditional down payment of 20% or are unable to receive approval for private mortgage insurance may consider an FHA loan.
About FHA Home Loans
An FHA loan is a mortgage loan that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Essentially, the federal government insures loans for FHA-approved lenders in order to reduce their risk of loss if a borrower defaults on their mortgage payments.
The FHA program was created in response to the rash of foreclosures and defaults that happened in 1930s; to provide mortgage lenders with adequate insurance; and to help stimulate the housing market by making loans accessible and affordable.
