FHA Loan Types

Choose from Several 2017 FHA Mortgage Programs

An FHA loan benefits those who would like to purchase a home but haven't been able to put money away for the purchase, like recent college graduates, newlyweds, or people who are still trying to complete their education.

The FHA adjustable rate mortgage is a HUD mortgage specifically designed for low and moderate-income families who are trying to make the transition into home ownership.

Many homeowners with adjustable rate mortgages find themselves in financial trouble because of current interest rate increases. FHA Secure refinancing can help when foreclosure is a threat.

An FHA reverse mortgage is designed for homeowners age 62 and older. It allows the borrower to convert equity in the home into income or a line of credit.

The FHA Energy Efficient Mortgage program helps current or potential homeowners significantly lower their monthly utility bills and incorporate the cost of energy efficient improvements into their mortgages.

Graduated Payment Mortgages are FHA loans for home buyers who currently have low to moderate incomes but expect them to increase substantially over the next 5 to 10 years.

FHA Section 245(a) allows those who currently have a limited income, but expect that their monthly earnings will increase, to purchase a home with the help of a Growing Equity Mortgage in which payments start small and increase gradually over time.

FHA condominium loans, sometimes called condo loans, are specifically designed toward those who purchase housing units in a condominium building.

Various loan options are available for those who prefer not to use the loans noted above. These alternatives include VA loans, conventional loans, jumbo fixed rate loans, among others.
