The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is secured by them. The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers. Rather, it provides lending agencies with safety by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Accessible to all homebuyers, FHA loan programs are formed to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans. Remember that the lending agency working with the the Federal Housing Administration is authorized to choose which appraisers they will use, unlike the VA appraisal panel. The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. FHA loan programs are incredibly beneficial to those homebuyers with less accessible cash.
