Which Loan Type is Right for You?
FHA Loans for 1st Time Home Buyers
Perfect for 1st time home buyers because FHA loans require only 3.5% down. Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are primarily designed to help low and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans that adhere to more strict underwriting guide lines. However, there are cases in which borrowers who are eligible for conventional financing would still choose a FHA loan. FHA home loan programs are particularly beneficial to those buyers with less available cash as the required down payment is lower than for conventional loans. Rates on FHA loans are also generally lower than conventional mortgage loans.

These mortgage loans are made possible using private investor programs.
