We're trained and understand the rules and procedures in FHA's guidance and policy documents.
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 financial transaction is an FHA-secured loan, it means it is underwritten by them.
The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers. Rather, it provides lending agencies with security by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations.
Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are built to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans.
Different from the VA appraiser panel, the lender working with FHA actually has the freedom to pick the appraiser.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans.
FHA loan programs are extremely beneficial to those purchasers with less available starting capital.
