FHA Loans Getting More Expensive-MIP Will Last Longer Than Previously Insured Loans

February 12, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The 3.5% down payment on FHA loans could be more expensive for buyers than expected. Beginning April 1, 2013, the mortgage insurance premium will go up by .1% to 1.35% which may not even be noticeable to most would-be homeowners. The staggering increase will occur on 6/3/2013 when FHA’s policy on the duration of the required mortgage insurance will be increased for the life of the mortgage

There are buyers that qualify on income and credit who may not have the necessary additional down payment required for 80% and 90% conventional loans. The 3.5% FHA program has provided a great vehicle to get into a home with a minimum amount of cash.

Homeowners who expect to be in their home long term can refinance with a conventional loan without mortgage insurance once the equity has increased due to amortization and appreciation. For buyers to avoid these increases, they will need to act now to get the FHA commitment issued prior to these change dates.

Sincerely,

Isn’t it nice to know that you have a friend in the business that you feel comfortable introducing to your friends, family members, and neighbors who could use my help.
