FHA Loans

FHA Loans were designed with the first time homebuyer in mind and are mortgage loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration. They are generally easier to qualify for than conventional financing, allowing lower credit scores and higher debt-to-income ratios. FHA home loans require as little as 3.5% down but require an upfront mortgage insurance premium that can be financed with the loan, and monthly mortgage insurance. The up-front and monthly rates vary depending on down payment amount and loan term. With the minimum down payment of 3.5%, these rates are currently at 1.75% for the front premium, and 0.85% for the monthly mortgage insurance.
