Mortgage Insurance Protection

Many first-time home buyers do not realize that an FHA loan does not come from the FHA. The FHA provides the lender, a bank or mortgage company, with protection in the form of Mortgage Insurance Protection (MIP), so that if a borrower should default on the obligation of the loan, the MIP pays the lender.

The Federal Housing Administration, is a branch within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). FHA loans are normally available to any buyer that is worthy of credit, but may be in a low to moderate family income level and might not meet ordinary loan requirements. The FHA is very different from an appraiser panel with the VA. An FHA lender has the option to choose who the appraiser will be.

The loan program at FHA can be especially beneficial to a buyer who may not have the cash available for a large down payment. Generally, the requirements for a down payment are less with an FHA loan and their loan rates are most often set by the current market rate.
