If your property loan is FHA approved, that means that the loan has been secured by the FHA, which is a branch of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not loan funds to borrowers, rather, it provides lending agencies with security by offering mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Applicable to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are built to aid credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans.

Typically, a buyer has to pay less of a down payment on an FHA-insured loan, while the rates remain standard market rates. Those with lower income or less starting money to use as a down-payment on a financial transaction benefit the most from Federal Housing Administration loan programs.
