Mortgage Loan Types

FHA Government Loan

FHA Loan

An FHA loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan money to borrowers, rather, it provides lenders protection through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are designed to help creditworthy, low to moderate income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans.

Conventional Financing

Conventional Financing

One of the advantages of a conventional loan is that the borrower can avoid paying the upfront mortgage insurance and possibly the monthly mortgage insurance of an FHA Loan. If a borrower makes a down payment of less than 20 percent on a conventional loan, the rates of mortgage insurance vary according to credit scores, debt-to-income ratio, the type of mortgage insurance a borrower chooses, as well as the loan-to-value ratio.
