If your home loan is FHA certified, that means that it has been secured by the FHA, which is part of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lender takes care of all the finances; the FHA simply insures the transaction with mortgage insurance in case the borrower does not pay off his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are built to assist low-to-moderate income homebuyers help meet credit requirements if they otherwise would not.

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 particularly helpful to those consumers with less accumulated starting capital.
