The Federal Housing Administration insures mortgages made by banks, so long as banks make these loan pursuant to their guidelines. This insurance component has traditionally allowed banks to make loans they otherwise might not due to risk aversion of some of the inherent characteristics (low down payment, credit challenges, etc.).

The borrower on an FHA loan pays an insurance component (MIP) with his/her mortgage payment to offset the cost of the bank's increased risk.

RPM makes FHA loans and if I can be of service to anyone who may have questions, feel free to get in touch.

Axis ... sounds like you have a good idea about finding and buying a home at Martin Headlands with possible view of Golden Gate Bridge.

I lived at the Bay Area at one time years ago, and our home had fantastic view of the Golden Gate. It was indeed beautiful.

Best wishes to you and your family.
