For most Americans, the purchase of a home is possible with a mortgage. However, saving the traditional 20% down payment is an unattainable goal for some would-be buyers.
Enter the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA, loan program, which has helped Americans buy homes since the Great Depression and remains a popular choice because of its affordability. FHA loans allow for smaller down payments while resolving some of the underwriting challenges borrowers face. The FHA insures these mortgages, which are issued by FHA-approved lenders. With a government guarantee, a lender can offer more flexibility with underwriting requirements, including credit guidelines and down payments.
This guide explains the FHA loan process and offers recommendations for lenders that can meet your home-buying needs.
No single FHA lender is perfect for every borrower. U.S. News recommends these lenders for their overall performance in product offerings, eligibility requirements and customer satisfaction. These FHA lenders sell directly to the consumer and lend nationwide, and recommendations are meant to aid your research by showing companies that are most likely to meet your needs.

RISMEDIA, Wednesday, December 26, 2018— Location, location, location. Half of buying a home is all about finding where you want to live. You might've found your dream house, but it's not in your dream neighborhood.
So, what should you be watching out for? Here's how you can find the perfect neighborhood:
Ah—the internet. It provides an immense amount of information. It's easy and entirely accessible for everyone, so you don't have any excuses not to take advantage of it. Look up what everyone is saying about a neighborhood you're interested in. Do people actually enjoy living there? What do they like and dislike about it?
Google the crime statistics for the area; safety should be top of mind. You don't want to get stuck in a neighborhood with a high break-in rate—take your safety and security seriously. At the same time, if you have kids, look up schools in the area. What are they rated? Most school systems have a rating scale based off mostly academics. Find out if they're good options for your children.
Literally. Do drive-bys, and do them at different times of the day. Get a feel for a certain neighborhood. Is there a soccer field or baseball diamond close by? You'll want to know before it's too late whether or not cars will be lined up on your street. Make sure you're in the know. You don't want things like that to come up as a surprise after you've moved in. Furthermore, check out the traffic patterns in the area. What's that intersection near the home you're interested in really like during rush hour?
This might not matter to some—if you're near retirement, it might not matter at all!—but a long commute has the potential to become an everyday stressor, one that you don't need or want. If you take the bus, look up the route and times. If you drive, check out the route during your normal commute times on Google Maps.
This could majorly impact your cost of living. Property taxes greatly differ from one region to the next. Do your research and find out what to expect. Don't let this come as a shock. You want to make sure you can afford the area you want to live in. Be sure to do your due diligence with some good research! Also, take this a step further, and look at other costs of living—think utilities and food prices.
Ensure your perfect home is in your ideal neighborhood. It's worth taking the time to do research and be sure it's really what you want.

Many millennials who rent a home or apartment prior to buying
their own homes, dream of the day that they will be able to paint
the walls whatever color they'd like, or renovate an outdated part
of their living space.
Many others who have waited to add a pet to their families
daydream about the day that they’ll be able to go pick out their
‘furever’ friend. Owning your own home gives you the freedom to
make those choices.
It is no surprise that having a place to call home, with all that
means, in comfort and security, is the #2 reason. As a homeowner,
you have control over who has access to your home, and you are
able to secure it how you see fit.
Similar to the #1 reason, when you purchase a home, you can
choose to live in a nicer home or choose to renovate a home &
restore its glory. Owning also allows you to accommodate your
growing family or a family member who may need to move in.
Owning a home in a community is one of the major reasons why
residents become more civically involved. The stakes are raised
once your home value is directly tied to the neighborhood and
community in which you live.
As we mentioned earlier, owning a home allows you to use your
monthly housing cost as a savings account that can be borrowed
against in the future. Having this option available during
uncertain times is just one of many reasons why homeowners feel
more secure in their homes.
