Q: What is an FHA loan and how do I get one?
A: An FHA loan is typically designed around a 3.5 % Down payment. These are great loans because the credit guidelines are flexible and can usually close within 45 days. With an FHA loan, the borrower has less interest in the property (i.e. lower down payment), the government requires insurance on the mortgage.
One thing to be aware of when you have a FHA loan is the importance of the appraisal process. Having an appraisal done is a step the lender takes to ensure that their investment is sound. An appraiser for an FHA loan will look a bit more in depth at the property, make sure all updates are up to code.
