On these common loans, the Federal Housing Administration provides mortgage insurance to protect lenders, making loans more available to potential homeowners.
For homeowners age 62+, a reverse mortgage allows you to access the equity in your home in the form of either income or a line of credit.
The Federal Housing Administration FHA offers special streamline refinancing programs:
Use the equity in your home to pay off debt at a much lower interest rate as part of a new (refinanced) mortgage.
