While you may be more familiar with other types of home loans, FHA loans have been helping people become homeowners since 1934. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) - which is part of HUD - insures the loan, so your lender can offer you a better deal.

Nearly 90% of VA-backed loans are made with no down payment. Find out about different loan programs—and how to apply.
