Generally speaking, the down payment required when a home loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is lower than that for a conventional loan, and a more favorable interest rate on these loan products may result in lower monthly payments as well.
But before a qualified home buyer can use either FHA or VA financing to purchase an individual home in an attached condominium project, the homeowner association (HOA) board of directors for that project must apply for and receive approval for the entire project from the government entity—either the FHA or the VA—that is being asked to insure or guarantee the loan.
