One of the most attractive mortgage types available.
FHA loans come with many benefits, including easy credit requirements, small down payments, and flexibility in the type of property you can buy. An FHA loan is a mortgage issued by an FHA-approved lender and insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Designed for low-to-moderate-income borrowers, FHA loans require a lower minimum down payments and credit scores than many conventional loans. As of 2020, you can borrow up to 96.5% of the value of a home with an FHA loan (meaning you'll need to make a down payment of only 3.5%). You'll need a credit score of at least 580 to qualify. If your credit score falls between 500 and 579, you can still get an FHA loan provided you can make a 10% down payment. With FHA loans, your down payment can come from savings, a financial gift from a family member or a grant for down-payment assistance.

A VA loan is a mortgage loan that’s issued by private lenders and backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It helps U.S. veterans, active duty service members, and widowed military spouses buy a home. VA loans were introduced as part of the GI Bill in 1944, but they’ve become increasingly popular in recent years. In the first quarter of 2019, 8% of home purchases were made with a VA loan.1 This type of loan is an attractive option because it’s pretty easy to qualify for and doesn’t require a down payment.
