It is easier to qualify for an FHA loan in many cases. This is because HUD which oversees FHA has less strict guidelines when it comes to a customer with credit problems, such as bankruptcy, foreclosure etc. Because of these benefits a FHA home mortgage can be the best choice for first time buyers.
FHA is an abbreviation for the Federal Housing Administration. Congress created the FHA in 1934 to make it easier for home buyers to get home loans. They do this by insuring mortgages for single family and multifamily homes. FHA mortgage insurance provides lenders with protection against a loss if a FHA homeowner defaults on a loan. Loans must meet requirements established by the FHA to qualify for this insurance. FHA and HUD have insured over 34 million homes since 1934. They are the largest insurer of mortgages in the world.
