2011 Fiscal Budget Lending Proposals Effecting Home Buyers and Real Estate Industry

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Weichert, Realtors® - SBA Group 9074493

There are new proposals made a part of fiscal year 2012 budget that will affect buyers' pocket and the Real Estate Industry;

April 18, 2011 - There will be a quarter of a percentage point increase to the annual mortgage insurance premium (MIP) on FHA mortgages.

Any new FHA loan will have an added premium of approximately $30 per month.

FHA conforming loan limits will drop back at the expiration of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) on October 1, 2011.

A proposal of phasing 10% down payment for all Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans from the current 3.5%.

Implementation of these proposals are for market recover but in current situation they are only going to make matters worse. It will become much harder to get a loan for the average buyer with the much higher down payment requirements and very few homes would qualify in these programs with lowering loan limits.
