An FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loan is a loan insured against default by the FHA. In other words, the FHA guarantees that a lender won’t have to write off a loan if the borrower defaults – the FHA will pay.
FHA loans are not for everybody. Nevertheless, they are a great help to some borrowers.
FHA loans allow people to buy a home with a down payment as small as 3.5%. Other loans might not allow such a low down payment.
Who can get an FHA Loan?
Almost anybody can get an FHA loan. There are no income limits. However, there are limits on how much you can borrow. In general, you're limited to median home prices in your area. To find the limits in your region, visit HUD's Website. To qualify for an FHA loan, you'll need to have reasonable debt to income ratios. You don't need perfect credit but you will need to have a credit score of at least 620.
FHA loans offer a few other bells and whistles:
3.5% down payment required on purchase
Easier to use gifts for down payment and closing costs
No prepayment penalty
Financing for home improvement using FHA 203k programs

Our Happy Clients
"Tony was great, knowledgeable and prompt in returning my calls. Details were clear and explained very well. I had contacted 2 other lenders before Premier, Carrington sounded like they had a third party call center and never returned my call and I e-mailed another one with no response. I looked up Premier Lending and your company had great reviews so I e-mailed you and got a response that someone would be contacting me soon, which Tony did. These other companies dropped the ball and they lost business, can’t imagine how much revenue goes out the door because of poor management and customer service, so kudos to a well-run business. Yes, I will recommend you to friends and family."
"I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the job everyone did at your company. I have refinanced several times in the past and usually pick the company that has the lowest rates. Of course I did the same when I chose your company. However, this time I received great service to go with the low rate."
"Premier leadership and staff bent over backward to make sure our loan application and processing was seamless and smooth. Though this was my first loan and I had great anxiety and anticipation, everything was fully explained and easy to process. Customer service is exceptional. I believe very strongly that both my loan officer and the company as a whole embraces standards of ethics and responsibility to their clients."
"Best rates and competitive rates. You excel with customer service and prompt service. Amy answered her own calls and I rarely got a voicemail. If I did get a voicemail, she returned the call very promptly. Same with emails. Great job, Premier Lending!"
