FHA Mortgage

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loan

An FHA Loan is a mortgage that’s insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). FHA loans provide an attractive loan option for many borrowers.

While typically associated with first-time home buyers, FHA Loans are ideal for anyone looking to buy, refinance, or improve a home because they offer a low down payment option and more flexible credit and income requirements. First-time homebuyers, borrowers with limited funds for a down payment, applicants with challenged credit scores, or those who want to roll rehabilitation costs into the mortgage, are all great applicants for an FHA loan.

Advantages of FHA loans include:

  • Low down payment requirements, as little as 3.5%
  • Lower, more lenient credit score thresholds
  • No income limits or requirements (maximum loan amount determined by HUD)
  • Up to 100% of your down payment can be a gift from a family member or friend
  • Eligibility for seller assistance with up to 6% of purchase price toward closing costs
  • Fixed rate loan with set interest rate for the life of the loan
  • Fixed monthly principal and interest payments
  • Streamlined refinance options available
