So what exactly is an FHA home loan?
The purpose of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is to provide mortgage insurance for loans made by FHA approved lenders to enhance opportunities for home ownership throughout Florida. The goal of the FHA loan program is to help our communities expand by making homes more affordable through limited down payment and credit requirements. It is important to note that FHA itself is not a direct lender, but rather a government entity that provides the insurance needed for private lenders to make loans requiring a minimum down payment. In the event of mortgage default, FHA mortgage insurance protects the lender from losses. FHA bridges the gap between FHA lenders and homeowners by providing a new form of financing that provides longer-term affordable mortgages.
