USDA will implement a new monthly fee starting October 1, 2011.  Most people in the mortgage industry will consider this a mortgage insurance premium (MIP).  Up until now one of the unique features of a USDA home loan is it had no MIP.  This addition of MIP will mean a higher mortgage payment.

 

Fortunately the rate is not as high as FHA’s MIP.  It is one third the amount of FH’s.  A $100,000 USDA mortgage will have an addition MIP payment of $29.17.  For comparison purposes an FHA loan of $100,000 would have a monthly MIP payment of $95.83.  As long as this is not a start of a series of USDA raises, it should have a small effect on the number of borrowers qualifying for a USDA mortgage.

 

Another difference between USDA and FHA is the FHA MIP would drop after 5 years and reaching a loan to value percentage of 78%.  The USDA MIP is for the life of the loan.

 

In the same announcement USDA is lowering their upfront guaranteed fee from 3.5% to 2.00%.
