About FHA Loans
FHA loans originate from the Federal Housing Administration and are insured by HUD (US Dept. of Housing) so that lenders can offer more affordable mortgage rates. There are even options for financing 100% of the loan, and several grant programs that provide FHA loan customers financing for the down payment.
FHA loans offer options to those who've undergone bankruptcy or foreclosure. They're available to first time homebuyers, refinancers and anyone who's purchasing property and doesn't already have an existing FHA loan.
Refinancing your Mortgage with an FHA Loan
You may refinance your home loan with an FHA loan if you don't currently have an existing FHA loan. Refinancing options include fixed, adjustable (ARM) and buy-down mortgage rates, although most buyers have a fixed-rate FHA loan.
FHA loan applicants find that FHA loans do not have as strict of income guidelines nor credit history as conventional loans. There are also options for loan consolidation with FHA loans.
