FHA Home Loans

FHA Loans Make Home Ownership More Affordable

The FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loan is one of several government-insured loans. FHA doesn’t lend money directly to home buyers; they insure lenders against losses that may occur from client default. Because of this, lenders have less strict requirements for borrowers. Traditionally, FHA loans have been a popular choice for first time home buyers.
