For all its rewards, the process of buying a home can certainly present its share of challenges. One of the biggest challenges is often securing a home loan. If you're a first-time home buyer, have less-than-perfect credit, or haven't been able to save up the recommended 20 percent down payment, our Cressy & Everett REALTORS® want you to know that you still have options.
For many home buyers, an FHA loan is one of the best among those options. It's one of the easiest types of home loans to qualify for, and while you should still not take out a loan without fully thinking out your options, it might be just the opportunity you need to make your dream of homeownership a reality.
Understanding FHA Loans
FHA loans were first introduced to help stimulate the housing industry while allowing more lenders to operate with less financial risk. These loans are backed by the Federal Housing Administration, which essentially protects the lender in case the borrower defaults on payment.
As a result, FHA loans are often some of the easiest loans to secure, although lenders and borrowers must still meet certain requirements. As with any type of home loan, an FHA loan comes with some pros as well as cons.
