FHA Loan

Buying a home when you have little money saved & a less-than perfect credit score might seem like a pipe dream, but it's not. In many cases an FHA loan can help!

What is a FHA loan?

An FHA loan is a home loan the Federal Housing Administration insures. FHA loans require a smaller a down payment and lower closing costs and allow relaxed lending standards to help homeowners who don’t qualify for a conventional mortgage.

FHA loans allow a down payment of as little as 3.5% on a mortgage. This can make it possible for lower- and middle-income borrowers to buy a house when they don’t qualify for a conventional loan — which has stricter requirements, including a higher credit score and bigger downpayment.
