The FHA is the Federal Housing Administration, which is a federal agency in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - if your loan is an FHA-secured loan, it means it is underwritten by them. The lender takes care of all the loaned money; the FHA simply insures the loan through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. Low-income and moderate-income homebuyers benefit from an FHA-secured loan; the point of the Federal Housing Administration is to help credit-worthy consumers to meet expectations and necessities for lending agencies 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. Buyers with lower income or less starting money to put down on a mortgage benefit the most from FHA loan programs.
