An FHA loan is underwritten by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal agency that is a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The lending company takes care of all the loaned money - the FHA simply insures the loan through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan. The FHA and their loan programs are created to help low-to-moderate income buyers by easing credit qualifications. Different from the VA appraiser panel, the lending agency working with Federal Housing Administration actually has the freedom to pick the appraiser.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. The loan programs that the Federal Housing Administration offers are lifesavers to consumers with less starting capital.
