If your home loan is FHA approved, that means that it has been guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). No part of the loan is provided by the FHA. What the FHA does is see to it that the mortgage is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. The FHA and their loan programs are created to aid low-to-moderate income purchasers by easing credit expectations. Remember, the FHA is different from the VA appraiser panel in that the lending agency can choose the appraiser. Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. FHA loan programs are extremely useful to those purchasers with less available cash.
