The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal organization in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); if your financial transaction is an FHA-insured loan, it means it is secured by them. No part of the loan is provided by the FHA. What the FHA does is make sure that the loan is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are designed to help low-to-moderate income purchasers by easing credit qualifications. Remember, the FHA deviates from the VA appraiser panel in that the lender can pick the appraisal company.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. Purchasers with lower incomes or less starting capital to put down on a loan benefit the most from FHA loan programs.
