Understanding FHA Loans
It’s important to understand that FHA loans are not issued by the Federal Housing Administration. Instead, the FHA loan is insured by the FHA, meaning that a lender can be confident that the loan’s balance will be paid off even if the individual or couple who took it out defaults. In order to offer loans backed by the FHA, lenders must be federally approved. An approved lender follows set federal guidelines for the issuance of FHA loans.
Is An FHA Loan Right for You?
At the Sierra Pacific Mortgage-Lake Tahoe Office, Steve Peterson will explain the ins and outs of FHA loans to you. If you are considering this type of loan, keep the following in mind:
- FHA loans have a funding fee which is usually added to the loan balance.
- FHA requiresyou to pay mortgage insurance every month.
- While down payments tend to be lower with FHA loans, it’s important to remember that a larger down payment will decrease your loan payment while increasing your equity.
- Depending on where you plan to buy, Sierra Pacific Mortgage may be able to offer you a loan for as much as $729,750. Your mortgage banker can provide you with information about loan maximums.
- Loan terms will be 30-year fixed, 15-year fixed or a 5-year hybrid plan. Steve Peterson will personallywork with you to analyze your financial situation and recommend the structure and term of the loan to tailor it to your needs.
- You do not have to have perfect credit, but you must have good credit in order to qualify for an FHA loan.
