What is an FHA loan?


FHA loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration and can be a great option for people who would normally find it difficult to qualify for a mortgage due to their income level, credit history, or their ability to put down a sufficient amount of down payment. For borrowers with a credit score of 580 or higher, these loans allow a down payment of just 3.5% of the total cost of the home. For those with a credit score between 500 and 579, a 10% down payment is required.

What are the benefits?


An FHA loan is one of the most attainable home loans on the market. Geared towards helping first-time home buyers, these loans offer affordable down payments and less-strict credit score requirements for those who qualify. Whether you’re in the market for a new home or seeking financial assistance to help renovate your current one, FHA loans can offer funding for your residential goals.


What is required to receive an FHA loan?

Before applying for an FHA loan, it’s important to know what to expect throughout the process. Once approved for an FHA loan, it is required to have an appraisal and credit report performed. A closing cost may also be required, depending on whether the home seller chooses to cover the closing costs or not.
