If your financial transaction is FHA insured, that means that the loan has been secured by the Federal Housing Administration, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lending organization takes care of all the loaned money; the FHA simply secures the loan by providing mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income consumers benefit from an FHA-backed loan; the purpose of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy buyers to meet expectations and requirements for lending organizations that 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. The loan programs that the FHA offers are extremely beneficial to consumers with less starting capital.
