FHA loans have been helping people become homeowners since 1934. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) – which is part of HUD – insures the loan, so your lender can offer you a better deal:
Low down payments
Low closing costs
Easy credit qualifying
If you are buying your first home, FHA might be just what you need. Your down payment can be as low as 3.5% of the purchase price, and most of your closing costs and fees can be included in the loan. Click here for more information.
