Be sure to contact JCB Appraisal Service if you need an appraisal done for an FHA-secured loan.

An FHA loan is secured by the Federal Housing Administration, a federal organization within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The FHA does not provide funds to borrowers. Rather, it provides lending agencies with security through mortgage insurance in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Available to all buyers, FHA loan programs are formed to assist credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not meet requirements for conventional loans. Remember that the lending agency approving a loan backed by the Federal Housing Administration is able to select the appraisal company with which they'll work, different from VA appraisal panel.

Down payments are often lower with an FHA loan despite using conventional market rates. Purchasers with lower incomes or less starting capital to use as a down-payment on a mortgage are helped the most from FHA loan programs.
