The Federal Housing Administration loan is the most common form of loan that the government gives out, technically though it is not a loan and is more like a guarantee that is given to mortgage lenders (such as banks) by the government that the homeowner will not default. One of the many advantages of these government loans is that people who are buying a house or an apartment for the first time need to only make a down payment of just three percent and in some cases the applicant can even be selected for 100 percent financing meaning that do not have to put down any amount as a down payment. Also the FHA does not have as stringent qualification policies for loans as opposed to many banks and other financial institutions. A good credit rating is not needed as long as you have paid copies of utility bills for the last few months. Keep in mind though that just because the government insures the loan it does not mean you can fall back in your repayment plan.
