This weekends blockbuster government takeover of Government Sponsored Mortgage Giants Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC) has created a welcome stability and confidence in both the mortgage market and the money markets as a whole. These entities are too large, effect too many individuals, and would create too much havoc if crippled for the US government to let them fail. I am not a personal fan of more government, but in this case, hoorah. It is necessary for the stability of many levels of our economy.
So the real question I promised to answer was, How does the Fannie & Freddie bailout plan help FHA borrowers? Aren't FHA loans covered by HUD? FHA Home Loans are covered by HUD, and are not directly associated with Fannie & Freddie. However, the market's reaction to the bailout has reduced Interest Rates by nearly .50% today on both Fannie/Freddie conventional loans but also on FHA Loans. The new found confidence the market has is helping to lower rates overall, which will improve buyer's affordability rates.
FHA Loans are still more competitive and have lower overall costs than Conventional or conforming loans when purchasing a home with very little down payment (10% or less) Contact Brian Skaar for a detailed comparison of your options, and find out why we are passionate about the benefits of FHA Loans and the money they can save you. It is also easier to qualify for FHA Loans. Fannie & Freddie Loans require Private Mortgage Insurance, which requires a secondary underwriting process from the mortgage insurer. With the VanDyk FHA Loan, you are automatically approved for the Mortgage Insurance when you qualify for the FHA Loan. It is just that easy.
It is important to work with a true loan professional to stay on top of the market, keep you abreast of the market changes, and get the best overall loan for your needs.
