An FHA loan is a borrower paid government- insured loan that has flexible loan options and that is issued through the US Federal Housing Administration (part of HUD). This government-insured loan has less strict credit requirements and qualifications, making it easier for you to qualify. This type of loan is designed for low-to-moderate income borrowers and requires a lower minimum down payment and lower credit scores than most conventional loans.
