FHA HOME LOANS
This type of loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and issued by an FHA approved lender. Designed for low-to-moderate-income borrowers, FHA loans require a lower minimum down payments and credit scores than many conventional loans.
It’s important to note that the Federal Housing Administration doesn't actually lend you money for a mortgage. Instead, you get a loan from an FHA-approved lender, like a bank, and the FHA guarantees the loan. Some people refer to it as an FHA insured loan, for that reason.
