There are really only a couple major kinds of FHA loans used much anymore. The main loan that borrowers use is called an FHA 203(b). This loan offers a low down payment and flexible qualifiying guidelines that are typically the easiest for borrowers to obtain.
The other type FHA loan is a 203(k) Rehabilitation Loan. When a 203(k) loan is used it allows a homebuyer to finance both a purchase money and fixup money into one single loan. What happens is that some of the loan received pays the seller and the rest is placed in an escrow account and then released as the rehab is finished.
