FHA Loans

What Is an FHA Loan?

An FHA loan is a perfect mortgage solution for those who have less than ideal credit. This very popular mortgage option is funded by the federal housing administration, which allows for lower credit scores and often just a 3.5% down payment. This makes an FHA loan a very attractive option to first time home buyers and many others looking to secure funding for their new residence.


Even though qualifying may be a bit easier than most loans, the paperwork and process can be just as difficult if you don’t have the proper support. From long and difficult paperwork to trying to figure out what documents you need, the process of securing an FHA loan on your own can quickly turn your excitement to pure frustration.


The Bally Team wants to make your FHA loan process as easy and understandable as we possibly can by guiding you step by step through your home buying journey.


The time you spend trying to decipher loan paperwork filled with mortgage industry jargon is time you can spend shopping for the perfect couch or patio furniture for your new home.

If the process is delayed for not turning in the correct documents or completing paperwork incorrectly you can lose money on fees, rising interest rates or even seller concessions. 


The Bally team understands you work hard for your money and deserve to save every penny you can. Working with us will give you the comfort of knowing that you’ll be ahead of the game and knowledgeable in every step of the process.

“Great to work with. I was a 1st time buyer and Amer had my back all along. I don’t remember waiting for more than 10 minutes for a response from the whole team. I was told about the closing cost way ahead in the process and there was no hidden charges. To top it off, we were able to close the deal from scratch within 20 days. Thanks a ton to the whole team.”
