Our FHA loans feature a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Ideal for first-time homebuyers – With low fixed rates and a small down payment requirement, FHA mortgages are designed with first-time homebuyers in mind.
  • Allows for assistance with closing costs – 100% of the down payment and closing costs can be gifted from a relative, nonprofit or government agency.
  • Fixed rates – A fixed, competitive rate for the life of the mortgage. In some cases, the mortgage may be offered at below-market interest rates.2
  • Financing offered across the nation3 up to the maximum loan amount, making an FHA mortgage an appealing option for many homebuyers.
