FHA Mortgage Insurance Premium INCREASE on April 18, 2011

FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums - Changes to FHA Loans in April 2011First time home buyers

The Federal Housing Administration will be increasing the monthly mortgage insurance premium on 30 and 15 year fixed rate mortgages by 25 basis points (pbs), or 0.25% of the total loan value.  

The change takes effect on April 18, 2011.

So what does this mean to you?

If you are in the market to purchase a home this Spring, then try to find your dream home -- and apply for your mortgage -- before April 18th.

If you can't find a home or condo by that time, then the new mortgage insurance premiums will apply to your loan.  The monthly payment increase isn't significant, but I know that when you are trying to buy your first home, every penny counts!

To follow is an example of the increase (based on a $163,000 home purchase):

Yup. FHA is hurting from losses not due to sub prime loans of course; they never insured sub prime loans, but their losses stem from the "ripple effect" of the housing and credit bubble. That is to say, home value depreciation, unemployment, etc. forcing good, qualified, responsible home owners sadly into foreclosure. When this occurs they have to pay the lender for the losses. Since their inception in 1934 FHA has adjusted their premiums (both UFMIP as well as AMIP) countless times. But each adjustment usually lasts a good few years and there's no telling which way the next adjustment will go; up or down, so definitely get your FHA buyers closed on time! No fence-sitting! (ha!)

Great post!

I miss Atlanta. Labor Day race tickets go on sale Mar 9 and yes, I'll be buying! Last year's Labor Day night race was GREAT!

There will be an impact on borrowers payments.  Even all 15 Yr Fixed FHA mortgages will have monthly MI.
