An FHA loan is a loan that is insured by HUD or the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
FHA loans are meant for the purchase of owner-occupied properties (primary residences) only. However, you are able to purchase a multi-unit property as long as you reside in one of the units. Let’s say a that you buy a duplex. If you live on one side and rent at the other you would be able to use FHA financing.
