FHA to Increase Mortgage Insurance Premiums

Buy now BEFORE interest rates and mortgage insurance premiums INCREASE!

Effective April 18, 2011 the FHA will increase the Annual Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP) on all FHA loans by twenty-five basis points.

What exactly does this mean for a home buyer?

The payment on a thirty year FHA loan with a case number issued on or after April 18th will increase by $33.00 on a sale price of $163,000. A case number is assigned when the client is under contract and there is a written mortgage application on file.

 Why Wait?

  • Mortgage Rates are still extremely low.
  • There are a huge selection of homes in most areas
  • Homes are more affordable than in recent years,. Many Sellers are willing to negotiate.
  • Rents are rising!

 Buy now BEFORE interest rates and mortgage insurance premiums INCREASE!

George - FHA reserves are very low, and it will cost more to obtain FHA financing.
