FHA Loans

Making Homeownership Achievable.

What is an FHA Loan?

FHA loans are mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Because FHA loans are government-assisted and insured, they are more accessible for borrowers (compared to conventional loans).


Why Choose an FHA Loan?

An FHA loan is a great option if you want to put less money down, don’t have enough savings built up for a conventional loan requirement of 20% down, or have a lower credit score. It’s important to note that while FHA loans require borrowers to pay for mortgage insurance (since they’re government-backed), they serve to provide homeownership opportunities for many home buyers who don't qualify for conventional financing!

FHA Loans Make Homeownership Achievable:

  • Low down payment requirement (as low as 3.5%)
  • Flexibility on debt-to-income ratio
  • Qualify with less-than-perfect credit
  • Down payment funds from family/friends allowed
  • Purchase or refinance loan options available
