Qualify Easier with an FHA Loan

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are insured by the US Government.  These loans are government assisted alternatives to conventional financing, and were originally offered for first-time home buyers with imperfect credit. Now, FHA loans are open to a wider audience, and are even popular options for homeowners looking to refinance.

Overall, FHA loans provide more flexibility in credit, income, and equity/down payment requirements. They do, however, include an Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP), as well as monthly mortgage insurance.
