Nashville FHA Loan Rates, Closing Costs & Stats

NASHVILLE-DAVIDSON--MURFREESBORO--FRANKLIN, TN

FHA loans are mortgages created in the 1930's to help insulate lenders from credit risks and help promote home ownership. The Federal Housing Administration (hence, FHA) allows for lower downpayments and credit scores-- making these loans much more accessible than traditional mortgages.

FHA loans typically need just a 3.5% downpayment with credit scores of 580 or better. For credit scores between 500-579, the downpayment needs to be at least 10%.

While FHA loans make home ownership much more accessible to first-time homebuyers, they do require PMI (purchase money insurance)-- an additional insurance premium that is paid to the FHA to help cover defaults.

Nashville's 253 lenders originated 9,967 FHA loans during 2021. The total origination value was $2,964,325,000, with an average FHA loan value of $297,414.
