New FHA Upfront MIP on Oct. 4, 2010

FHA Homebuyers will see the new FHA Upfront MIP go down as of October 4, 2010.  

Over the past 2-3 months, Congress has taken action and passed H.R. 5981. This bill gives FHA the authority to adjust it's annual mortgage insurance premium yielding approximately $300 million per month to the FHA Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund at a time when its reserves are perilously low. As a result, FHA has decided that effectively on October 4, 2010, the UFMIP (Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium) and the Monthly Insurance Premium will change in order to meet the demands of future FHA Homeowners.  

What does this mean for you and how does it affect your ability to qualify for an FHA Loan?

That is a significant increase and I was hoping that it would not happen. I notified all clients of this when it was first introduced.

Hi Mike, Actually all-in-all, it isn't a bad thing.  Actually my recent client is going to have a whole 1.25% less tacked on to her loan and her payment only went up $37.. Not too shabby.
