Kentucky FHA Mortgage Insurance Changes for 2017. Cheaper Mortgage Insurance!



Kentucky FHA MIP Rate Changes
Effective for Kentucky  FHA loans with a disbursement date on or after January 27, 2017, HUD is lowering the monthly MIP rates almost across the board. The only MIP remaining the same is that of Streamline & Simple Refinances with terms > 15 years who were eligible for lower MIP as part of the HARP program. Please refer to the below chart for a comparison of the current and upcoming MIP rates.

This is a 25% reduction so it is pretty big deal for lowering your mortgage payments if you go FHA.

For example on a $150,000 loan amount, this would reduce your payment by $31 a month if you had a FHA loan with with 3.5% down payment with a qualfying credit score. 

Remember, FHA does not base their premiums on credit scores, meaning everyone get's the same deal on mi even if you have a 600 credit score, or a 750 credit score.

So if you have a lower fico score, you may want to look at doing a FHA loan after January.
