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 financial transaction is an FHA loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The lending company takes care of all the money in the loan; the FHA simply insures the transaction through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Accessible to all consumers, FHA loan programs are built to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.
Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. FHA loan programs are incredibly helpful to those buyers with less accumulated cash.
