An FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loan is a loan insured against default by the FHA. In other words, the FHA guarantees that a lender won’t have to write off a loan if the borrower defaults – the FHA will pay.
FHA loans are not for everybody. Nevertheless, they are a great help to some borrowers.
FHA loans allow people to buy a home with a down payment as small as 3.5%. Other loans might not allow such a low down payment.
Who can get an FHA Loan?Almost anybody can get an FHA loan. There are no income limits. However, there are limits on how much you can borrow. In general, you're limited to median home prices in your area. To find the limits in your region, visit HUD's Website. To qualify for an FHA loan, you'll need to have reasonable debt to income ratios. You don't need perfect credit but you will need to have a credit score of at least 620.
FHA loans offer a few other bells and whistles:
3.5% down payment required on purchase
Easier to use gifts for down payment and closing costs
No prepayment penalty
Financing for home improvement using FHA 203k programs

Our Happy Clients
"Brad, I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with you and your company. Even though I was ready to refinance, you took the time necessary to educate me on why it may be best to wait. It's not every day that you meet a professional who puts their customers needs ahead of their own. When the time is right based on the circumstances we discussed, I'll be back for sure."
"I just wanted to thank you for constantly following up with me. The last time I refinanced it seemed as if I always had to follow up with the mortgage company. Thanks for staying on top of everything and keeping things moving forward."
"I called Mortgage Experts based off an ad I saw on the internet. From the moment that Brad and I spoke, I felt at ease. He is a straight shooter, kept me informed throughout the loan, and even showed up to my closing to make sure that everything went smooth (and it did). I would definitely work with Brad and his team again."
