HUD Reduces FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recently announced a significant reduction in the annual mortgage insurance premium (MIP) for FHA loans. This reduction means that borrowers who obtain an FHA loan will pay lower MIP rates, resulting in lower monthly payments and more affordable homeownership.

The FHA has reduced the MIP rate from 85 basis points (bps) to 30 bps, a significant decrease of 55 bps. This reduction applies to new FHA loans endorsed for insurance by FHA on or after March 20, 2023.

The MIP is a fee that borrowers pay to the FHA to insure their loans against default. This fee is typically added to the borrower’s monthly mortgage payment and is used to cover the costs of administering the FHA’s mortgage insurance programs.

The FHA’s decision to reduce the MIP rate is a welcome change for borrowers who are looking to purchase a home but are concerned about the high cost of homeownership.  For more information about FHA financing give us a call at (269) 360-7109 or apply online!
