FHA MORTGAGE LOAN
Low down payment

Maximum loan amounts vary by county
As a way to lift a struggling economy back in 1934, Congress introduced a home loan backed by the Federal Housing Administration,

Popular with first time homebuyers due to the low down payment requirement, the FHA loan carries a government-backed guarantee financed by mortgage insurance premiums protecting the lender from a loss should the borrowers go into default. The FHA does not approve the loan or get involved in any aspect of the underwriting process but does issue guidelines approved FHA lenders must follow. In return, the loan is granted the FHA guarantee.
