HOW TO QUALIFY FOR A FHA LOAN
All FHA loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration and are more lenient than conventional loans. These government-backed home loans have helped finance the American Dream since 1934. Low down payments and attractive qualifying guidelines put home ownership within reach for many who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to buy a home with a conventional mortgage.
FHA loans are available with many different terms, so you can choose the length of the mortgage that works for you as well as the down payment depending on your credit score. The home you want to buy will have to meet the FHA’s minimum property standards.
If you are thinking of refinancing. An FHA adjustable rate mortgage are available and offer a low fixed rate.

Benefits of FHA Loans
FHA loans aren’t perfect for everybody, but they are an excellent fit in some situations. The main appeal is that they make it easy to buy property. But remember that these benefits always come with trade offs. The most attractive features include:
SMALL OR NO DOWN PAYMENT
FHA loans allow you to buy a home with a down payment as low as 3.5% percent. Other (conventional) loan programs may require a larger down payment, or they require high credit scores and high incomes to get approved with a small down payment.
If you have more than 3.5 percent available, you might be better off making a more substantial down payment. Doing so gives you more borrowing options like lower rates and saving money over the life of your loan.
No Down Payment: > Learn More
Gifts: It’s easier to use gifts for your down payment and closing costs with FHA financing.
Seller Credits: Sellers can pay up to 6 percent of the loan amount toward a buyer’s closing costs. You’re most likely to benefit from that in a buyer’s market, but even in strong markets, you can potentially adjust your offer price enough to entice sellers.
FHA are Assumable: A buyer can “take over” your FHA loan if it’s assumable. They pick up where you left off, benefiting from lower interest costs
Mortgage Credit Events are OK: With a recent bankruptcy, foreclosure or short sale in your history. FHA loans are still available with waiting periods depending on the hardship
Home improvement and repairs: Certain FHA loan programs can be used to pay for home improvement (through FHA 203k Rehab / Streamline programs). If you’re buying property that needs upgrades, those programs make it easier to fund your purchase and improvements with just one loan.
