Breaking News Lower FHA MIP

The annual mortgage insurance premiums on FHA-backed loans will be lowered by 1/4% on loans starting January 27, 2017.

The new premium which takes effect for residential mortgage loans that have an insurance endorsement will save the average buyer $500 a year in insurance costs.

After 4 straight years of growth and with sufficient reserves on hand  to meet future claims, it is time for FHA to pass along some modest savings to working families.

NAR is calling on FHA to take even  more steps to help home buyers, including eliminating FHA's "life of the loan" mortgage insurance requirement, which forces borrowers to maintain mortgage insurance regardless of their equity position.
