The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal organization in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is secured by them. The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lending agencies with safety with mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are built to help low-to-moderate income purchasers help meet credit qualifications if they otherwise would not.
The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. FHA loan programs are incredibly helpful to those purchasers with less accessible cash.
