Is an FHA loan better than a conventional loan? It’s not exactly the age old question, but FHA vs Conventional has become more relevant since 2008; when the housing market tumbled and lenders scrambled to replace their subprime menu.
FHA loans are normally priced lower than comparable conventional loans. Also FHA loans are assumable loans ; this may be a particularly good future resale point if the borrower would have an existing low interest rate on the home they are selling. That interest rate and mortgage balance can be assumed by a new buyer.
No one loan is better than the other, but some loans are a better fit for certain homebuyers. The above information is not exhaustive and for more information on FHA or Conventional loans contact a mortgage professional.
