The FHA makes home ownership achievable.

Do you need some flexibility with qualifications and credit requirements? Want to put as little as 3.5% down on your home? Then look no further! This loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and was originally aimed at first-time home buyers who had less-than-perfect credit. Although this is still a great option for first-time homebuyers, the FHA is open to a wider audience of buyers and has even become a popular refinancing option. Keep reading to see if this could be the loan for you.
