How FHA Loans Can Help You

The Federal Housing Administration is the largest insurer of mortgages in the world. They offer the most competitive loans for first-time home buyers and those who are budget-conscious. The FHA guarantees the loan which means that they promise to pay lenders if a borrower defaults on an FHA loan. To fund this, they charge borrowers a fee called a mortgage insurance premium. There is an upfront cost and an ongoing monthly fee which can be refinanced.
