FHA Payments Going Up April 2011

Feb 16, 2011

Considering an FHA loan to buy or refinance a home? If so you should move fast. HUD has announced new annual FHA mortgage insurance premium (MIP) rates starting April, 2011. This means that the initial payment on FHA mortgages will feel like the note rate has increased .25%. These new monthly premiums are double what they were last year.

New FHA Annual Mortgage Insurance Rates

The following is the table for the new rates

Rate-Term Refinances

<= 95% > 15 Years 1.00% 1.15%
> 95% > 15 Years 1.10%
<= 90% <= 15 Years 0.25%
>= 90% <= 15 Years 0.50%

This may mean it may be harder to qualify to purchase a home and some FHA Streamline refinances will not make sense.
