FHA BRINGS IN THE NEW YEAR WITH MIP CUTS FOR BORROWERS!

January 11, 2017
FHA BRINGS IN THE NEW YEAR WITH MIP CUTS FOR BORROWERS! The Federal Housing Administration, also known as the FHA, has decided to bless borrowers this year by cutting mortgage insurance premiums. Who is the Federal Housing Administration? The Federal Housing Administration, simply called the FHA, is the government body that sets standards for the processing of mortgage loans. Most notably, the FHA insures loans made by banks that have been FHA approved. The Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund created and backed by the FHA has grown exponentially in the past four years under the Obama Administration. This means that the FHA now has the flex room it needs to provide an opportunity for savings for deserving and responsible borrowers. What does cutting Mortgage Insurance Premiums mean for our borrowers? The cut in MIP (Mortgage Insurance Premiums) will apply to FHA loans with a closing or disbursement date on or after January 27, 2017. The FHA cut in Mortgage Insurance Premiums is going to do wonders for the borrowers who have to deal with this new environment of rising interest rates. The FHA is predicting that homeowners will be able to save an average of $500 per year. The cut in Mortgage Insurance Premiums means that the cost of housing will decrease and the opportunity for mortgage credit availability will meaningfully expand. In a nutshell, more borrowers will have the opportunity to take out FHA loans because the cost of obtaining an FHA loan is being reduced. What does cutting Mortgage Insurance Premiums mean for Valley West Mortgage? We love originating loans for our borrowers at Valley West Mortgage. We (as your lender) bear risk every time we lend money to homeowners. To offset that risk, borrowers pay a Mortgage Insurance Premium at closing as well as an annual mortgage insurance premium that is a small percentage of the loan amount. That premium paid by the borrower then goes toward the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund, an account that will pay back the lender if the mortgager falls on hard times and defaults on their loan. Mortgage Insurance Premiums being cut by the FHA means that we will be able to originate even more FHA loans for our borrowers because the required premium at closing will be of a smaller amount than it has been in the past. Let’s Recap The Federal Housing Administration or FHA, charges a small percentage of your loan amount to insure your loan against a default. This small percentage that is paid once at closing, and once annually is called your Mortgage Insurance Premium or MIP. The MIP is a part of the cost of your loan. When the cost of the mortgage insurance premium is cut, it allows more borrowers to meet the debt to income ratio that is required to take out an FHA loan. Borrowers that may not have been eligible to meet the standards before now have a chance to enter into the homeowners world. Lenders for whom business may have been slow

Private Mortgage Insurance is Temporary. Here’s Why.

December 22, 2015
Home buyers who can’t put at least twenty percent (20%) down usually have to carry private mortgage insurance, often an expensive proposition. One good thing about the insurance, though, is that it doesn’t last forever. Private mortgage insurance protects the lender in the event that a borrower stops making payments before building up much equity in the property. A borrower who diligently pays down a loan, eventually crossing that twenty percent (20%) equity threshold, is no longer considered a big risk, and can expect to be rewarded with cancellation of this requirement. Under the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998, lenders must terminate the insurance after a certain point, something that hadn’t been done consistently before then. The act set the termination date as the point at which the principal balance on the loan is scheduled to reach 78 percent of the original value of the home. In other words, if you buy a home for $100,000 and put ten percent (10%) down, your starting loan balance is $90,000. Once you have paid enough toward principal that the balance reaches $78,000, or twenty percent (20%), the insurance policy should be automatically cancelled. A compliance bulletin issued earlier this month by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reminded lenders that automatic insurance cancellation is required even if the value of the home has declined from the original value (in other words, the sales price). The law also creates a way to seek earlier cancellation. The cancellation rules do not apply to the low-down payment loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration as borrowers must pay insurance for as long as they have an FHA loan if the loan was acquired after June of 2013.
