If your home loan is FHA insured, that means that the loan has been secured by the FHA, which is part of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
No part of the loan is provided by the FHA. What the FHA does is see to it that the mortgage is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations.
Low-income and moderate-income borrowers benefit the most from FHA-backed loan programs. The point of the Federal Housing Administration is to aid credit-worthy families and individuals get approved for mortgages that they otherwise would not.
Remember that the lending agency working with the the Federal Housing Administration is free to choose their appraisers, unlike the VA appraisal panel.
Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates.
FHA loan programs are particularly helpful to those consumers with less accessible cash.
