FHA home loans are mortgage loans that are insured against default by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). FHA loans are available for single family and multifamily homes. These home loans allow banks to continuously issue loans without much risk or capital requirements. The FHA doesn't issue loans or set interest rates, it just guarantees against default.
FHA loans allow individuals who may not qualify for a conventional mortgage obtain a loan, especially first time home buyers. These loans offer low minimum down payments, reasonable credit expectations, and flexible income requirements. This loan is ONLY for those homebuyers who will live in the home. Here are some highlights:
-Up to 96.5% financing
-1-4 family homes
-non-occupant co-signors o.k.
-credit scores as low as 560
-rehab and renovation financing available
-down payment can be a gift (credit scores over 580)
