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-secured loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with safety through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income consumers benefit from an FHA-backed financial transaction; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and requirements for lenders that they otherwise would not.
Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. The loan programs that the FHA provides are extremely helpful to purchasers with less starting income.
