Be sure to contact if you need an appraisal done for an FHA-secured loan.

If your loan is FHA approved, that means that the loan has been guaranteed by the FHA, which is underneath the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). None of the money in the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is make sure that the mortgage is paid for in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are designed to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are acutely useful to buyers with less starting income.
