An FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loan is a loan insured against default by the FHA. In other words, the FHA guarantees that a lender won’t have to write off a loan if the borrower defaults – the FHA will pay.
FHA loans are not for everybody. Nevertheless, they are a great help to some borrowers.
FHA loans allow people to buy a home with a down payment as small as 3.5%. Other loans might not allow such a low down payment.
Who can get an FHA Loan?Almost anybody can get an FHA loan. There are no income limits. However, there are limits on how much you can borrow. In general, you're limited to median home prices in your area. To find the limits in your region, visit HUD's Website. To qualify for an FHA loan, you'll need to have reasonable debt to income ratios. You don't need perfect credit but you will need to have a credit score of at least 620.
FHA loans offer a few other bells and whistles:
3.5% down payment required on purchase
Easier to use gifts for down payment and closing costs
No prepayment penalty
Financing for home improvement using FHA 203k programs

Our Happy Clients
" I recently used All Western Mortgage for a loan on a new house I purchased and had a great experience. They had the most competitive rates and their process was so easy. The mortgage process is something I’m not very familiar with and Eric and Tory really took the time to help me understand my options and guide me in the right direction. They were extremely helpful throughout and were always available and easy to reach whenever I had questions. We even closed on my loan earlier than expected! If you’re looking for truly great service with people who actually care to help, I highly recommend All Western Mortgage."
"I had an excellent experience working with Mr. Gut. He was very cordial and professional, and patient when explaining complicated matters. Great customer service is hard to find, but Eric delivers. I will definitely do business with him again!"
"I had to find a lender to close on a house quickly and came across All Western Mortgage online. It was my first time applying online, but they made me feel very comfortable with everything and got my loan done in a few weeks!"
