FHA offers .
FHA home loans are available for individuals with a 580 or higher credit score. With a 3.5% minimum down payment, it makes this loan more accessible than other mortgages.
An FHA loan is a mortgage that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). They usually come with a lower down payment requirement and more lenient credit restrictions. In fact, the down payment on an FHA loan can be as little as 3.5% of the purchase price of the home, and they can be taken out on properties with up to four units, allowing qualified buyers to not only own their own home, but to potentially have rental income as well. Conventional mortgages have more stringent credit requirements, and the down payment is usually higher than an FHA loan.
