If your home loan is FHA insured, that means that it has been secured by the FHA, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan capital to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders with security through mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay his or her financial obligations. Low-income and moderate-income homebuyers benefit from an FHA-secured financial transaction; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to assist credit-worthy potential buyers to meet expectations and requirements for lending organizations that they otherwise would not.

The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. The loan programs that the FHA offers are incredibly helpful to purchasers with less starting capital.
