Government Loans By the Numbers
How to Find an Affordable Loan

Buying a house for most people means finding and securing an affordable loan. As the housing market continues to fluctuate, federal programs are making loans more affordable. Students in particular have been taking advantage of government loan structures to help pay off debt they accrue during college.

But government loans can also help aspiring homeowners afford housing loans. The Department of Housing and Urban Development provides guidelines for figuring out what you can afford, shopping for loans, and other resources that are designed to assist new homeowners.

What Are FHA Loans?

FHA loans are insured by government agencies, and provide financial security to the lender. This insurance protects the lending party and allows them to offer loans at more affordable interest rates and less constricting qualification standards.

The flexibility of these loan terms makes them appealing to a wider range of applicants.
For instance, for people who may have less than perfect credit, such as young homeowners, these federal loans are easier to apply and qualify for. There is no minimum credit score required, and each applicant’s credit history is evaluated on an individual basis and context.
