This morning HUD announced a 25 basis point reduction in the annual MIP fee effective for loans with a closing/disbursement date on after January 27, 2017. That takes the fee from 80 to 55 bps for the loan terms of <= $625.5k loan size and <=95% LTV. The new MIP for loans >95% LTV is now 60 bps vs. 85 bps earlier.
This reduction makes FHA even more competitive for first time homebuyers, especially those buyers with lower credit scores. If you are looking at homebuying this year, this just made it more in reach for many. Call me today to become pre-approved to buy your first home! 503 581 8100
