FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loans are insured and backed by the U.S government, and are uniquely designed with the sole purpose of making home ownership easier. They offer appealing benefits and flexible qualification guidelines that provide an excellent alternative to conventional financing.
Ideal for first-time homebuyers or people with less capital for a down payment, newly established careers or less than perfect credit.
Primary residence, single family and 2-4 unit properties, condos and townhomes, Planned Unit Developments (PUDs), and manufactured double-wide homes; maximum loan amounts vary by county (FHA Mortgage Limits by County).
FHA loans provide a wide range of flexibility and attractive benefits that make it one of the most commonly-used solutions for homeowners.
