If your financial transaction is FHA insured, that means that the loan has been secured by the Federal Housing Administration, which is part of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lender provides all the money in the loan; the FHA simply secures the loan through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are created to aid low-to-moderate income homebuyers help meet credit expectations if they otherwise would not.

The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. FHA loan programs are incredibly helpful to those purchasers with less accessible funding.
