FHA stands for the Federal Housing Administration, a government agency that standardizes and insures home mortgages, which makes it easier for more people to get loans to purchase a home.
The FHA requires that homes with FHA-backed loans meet certain standards. The homes must also be appraised by an FHA-approved appraiser in order to qualify. FHA loans require that you pay an up-front Mortgage Insurance premium of 1.75% of the loan amount. This may be paid at closing or rolled into the loan.
