FHA Reduces Monthly Mortgage Insurance!

To Pay or Not To Pay…. That is the question. Hey, none of us WANT to pay FHA’s monthly mortgage insurance as part of our mortgage payment. But we have to pay to play right? Well, since FHA is so attractive in that it allows first time home buyers or those who have not owned a home within the last three years to only have to put down 3.5%, then we have to pick our battles so to speak. In allowing such a low down payment percentage, lending institutions need some kind of surety that their money is protected in case of default by the borrower. That’s all well and good just as anything else in life needs insurance – our cars, our health and the list goes on. So why not home loans right?

Well, just because any us with an FHA loan needs to pay mortgage insurance doesn’t mean we can’t get away with paying less. It was recently announced that FHA has reduced it’s monthly mortgage insurance premium calculation from 1.35% to .85%. What does that mean to you? Anyone who currently owns a home with an FHA mortgage or looking to buy a home using an FHA mortgage, you can now save a pretty sizable amount per month.
