What is an FHA loan?

Put simply, an FHA loan is a loan used to buy a family home by millions of Americans. FHA loans are typically 30 year mortgages (A mortgage is a fancy way of saying a loan with a house used as collateral) but can have 15 year terms. Most FHA loans have fixed interest rates, which means the interest rate will not change at any point throughout the loan term.

FHA loans are federally insured mortgage loans requiring only a 3.5% down payment. FHA loans can by used by first-time & experienced homebuyers alike. Our FHA payment calculator accounts for all of FHA's quirks, including upfront & annual mortgage insurance premiums.

FHA loans are mortgages backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). FHA allows lenders to make mortgage loans with only 3.5% down payments. For most home buyers FHA is the mortgage option that keeps out of pocket money to a minimum.
