Good morning Yvonne....

FHA is the one of the safest loan products available, and since it is a HUD product, it is one of the least restrictive in terms of qualifying. I hesitate to say easiest, because it still takes some work to qualify, of course, however, compared to Fannie or Freddie, the guidelines allow more people to qualify for FHA loans with lower downpayments and more likely to forgive lower credit scores.
Find a great lender that specializes in FHA and go over the guidelines, set your goals, and decide if now is a time for you to purchase a home. Good Luck, Merry Christmas!

FHA has some minimum quailification most lenders have similar type loans with different guidelines as well. Your best bet is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for.
