The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); if your financial transaction is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is backed by them.
The lending organization provides all the funds being borrowed - the FHA simply secures the transaction with mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan.
The FHA and their loan programs are formed to help low-to-moderate income buyers by easing credit requirements.
Unlike the VA appraiser panel, the lending agency working with FHA is allowed to pick the appraiser.
Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates.
The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are extremely useful to consumers with minimal starting capital.
