The No. 1 challenge for most first-time home buyers? Coming up with enough of a downpayment. That’s where the FHA home loan program comes in. It’s one of the most popular mortgage programs available today for first-time home buyers with modest down payments and less-than-perfect credit. It has one of the lowest downpayment requirements available. For many families, the program has meant the difference between being able to buy a home and having to continue to rent. As an established FHA lender, our team is here to help you take the necessary steps to finance and achieve the goal of homeownership. We have years of FHA lending experience and can answer your questions and guide you through the loan process.
Part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Housing Administration doesn’t actually provide home loans. That’s a common myth. The FHA does, however, offer insured loans made by lenders throughout the United States and its territories. The insurance helps protect lenders against losses in the event homeowners default on their mortgage loans. That’s vitally important. Generally, data over many years shows that the lower the downpayment a borrower makes, the higher the risk of default. With FHA insurance, lenders are able to accept lower down payment loans and offer easier qualifying criteria than they otherwise would be able to accept.
FHA loans have minimum credit score and downpayment requirements, although they are among the most flexible of any type of loan. You’ll still need to have your financial house in order, show steady income and demonstrate that you are good at paying your bills on time.
