An FHA loan is underwritten by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers. Rather, it provides lending organizations with safety through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her financial obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are created to benefit low-to-moderate income homebuyers by easing credit qualifications. Unlike the VA appraiser panel, the lending agency working with FHA has the freedom to choose the appraiser. The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. Purchasers with lower incomes or less starting funds to use as a down-payment on a loan are assisted the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
