FHA vs Conventional Mortgages -- Which is Better for You?

Whether an FHA mortgage is better than a conventional one depends on a number of factors including current interest rates, current mortgage insurance rates, and your expected downpayment/equity percentage.
The 30-year fixed rate mortgage comes in multiple flavors. 
There is the 30-year fixed rate mortgage from the VA; the 30-year fixed rate mortgage from the USDA; and jumbo lenders offer 30-year fixed rate mortgages, too. Each is slightly different in terms of qualification standards and payment schedules 
The two most popular 30-year fixed rate mortgages are the conventional 30-year fixed rate mortgage as offered by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the FHA 30-year fixed rate mortgage 
 Mortgage expert Dan Green goes into detail on this subject in his Mortgage Reports blog...
