What are FHA Loans?

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insures some mortgage loans so that more lenders are willing to make loans to borrowers who might not be able to qualify for other loan types. This is true for borrowers with sketchy credit histories or because of high debt-to income ratios. With a FHA insured loan, a homebuyer can make a down payment of as little as 3 percent. The FHA charges the borrower an upfront mortgage insurance premium fee, plus a monthly charge on all loans.
