What is an FHA Loan?
FHA loans are government-backed mortgage loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Since these loans are insured by the government they do require monthly private mortgage insurance (PMI) but also have easier credit qualifying guidelines, relatively low closing costs (that can be bundled into the loan), as well as down-payment requirements as low as 3.500%. They also allow the use of gift funds for 100% of the borrower’s closing costs and/or down payment! These loans are available for 1-4 unit primary residential properties and can be adjustable-rate or fixed-rate mortgages.
FHA loans are also assumable, meaning someone with an FHA loan can pass it on to you if the interest rate is favorable relative to current market rates, or vice-versa. Just note that the individual assuming the FHA loan must qualify under the same underwriting guidelines that apply to new loans. Remember…be sure to compare FHA loans with conventional loans as well. There will be cases when the benefit of one outweighs the other. That’s where the importance of using an experienced residential mortgage broker who is knowledgeable about the various, and sometimes complicated, loan programs available.
