If your house loan is FHA insured, that means that it has been secured by the FHA, which is a branch of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with protection by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Available to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are created to help credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans.
Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. Consumers with lesser income or less starting money to use as a down-payment on a mortgage are helped the most from FHA loan programs.
