The FHA, or Federal Housing Administration, provides mortgage insurance on loans for purchasing a home. They insure the mortgages for single and multifamily homes, manufactured homes, and hospitals. Since their founding in 1934, they have provided more than 34 million insured property loans. An FHA insured mortgage loan does not require very much cash investment in order to close. In some instances (a higher down payment on the home) there are no closing costs. FHA mortgages are more lenient on a number of factors.
