What is It?
An FHA loan is a US Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance backed mortgage loan which is provided by First Community Mortgage. FHA insured loans are a type of federal loan that have historically allowed lower income Americans to borrow money for the purchase of a home that they would not otherwise be able to afford.
What are the Benefits of an FHA Loan?
FHA loans have more flexible credit qualification standards than Conventional loans. The minimum credit score requirement is also lower. Your down payment may also come in the form of a gift from family, certain government agencies, and charitable organizations.
What Else Should I Know?
To obtain mortgage insurance from the Federal Housing Administration, an upfront mortgage insurance premium (UFMIP) equal to 1.75 percent of the base loan amount at closing is required. This is normally financed into the total loan amount by the lender and paid to FHA on the borrower’s behalf. There is also a monthly mortgage insurance premium (MIP) which varies based on the loan term and loan-to-value ratio.
