Lender must be FHA-approved

Because the FHA is not a lender, but rather an insurer, borrowers need to get their loan through an FHA-approved lender (as opposed to directly from the FHA). Not all FHA-approved lenders offer the same interest rate and costs -- even on the same FHA loan.

Costs, services and underwriting standards will vary among lenders or mortgage brokers, so it's important for borrowers to shop around.
