FHA Loan

What Is an FHA Loan?

FHA loans are government-insured loans backed by the Federal Housing Authority. They are designed for low- to moderate-income earners and typically come with the lowest down payments.

FHA Loan Qualifications

Because FHA loans are designed for lower-income earners, qualifying for this type of financing is easier than many other loan types. Higher debt-to-income ratios are allowed, and borrowers need only a 3.5 percent down payment. Borrowers can have as low as a 580 credit score and still qualify for an FHA loan.

Who Should Get an FHA Loan?

FHA loans are best for borrowers who:

  • Are first-time homebuyers
  • Have less than perfect credit
  • Have little saved for a down payment
  • Have high debt-to-income ratios
  • Are receiving gift money for their down payment
