Learn About FHA Mortgage Loans
An FHA loan may be an excellent option for borrowers who can’t qualify for conventional mortgage loans due to poor credit, low income, or lack of a significant down payment. FHA mortgage loans offer home loan financing ideal for first-time homebuyers, borrowers who have had a challenging credit history, or borrowers with low income.
FHA loans can afford greater flexibility in qualifications because the Federal Housing Authority backs them. Whereas a conventional loan requires a credit score above 620, an FHA loan may only require a 500 score. With a credit score of 580 or higher, your down payment may be as low as 3.5%.
Lenders offer fixed rates for FHA mortgage loans, so your mortgage payment will stay the same throughout the life of the loan. You can choose between 15- and 30-year loan terms, making your monthly payments as affordable as possible.

It is a fast way to lower your interest rate or change the loan term on your mortgage.
To qualify for Streamline Refinancing, borrowers must:
