FHA fees increasing on April 1, 2012

FHA will increase the upfront mortgage insurance premium by 75% on April 1, 2012. The current upfront fee is 1% and will be increasing to 1.75%. This means that the upfront mortgage insurance on a $300,000 FHA mortgage will increase from $3,000 to $5,250. Additionally, the monthly mortgage insurance, which is currently 1.15% for a mortgage with a loan to value over 95%, will be increasing by 0.1% to 1.25% annually.

At a Senate Hearing last week on the state of the housing market, Secretary Donovan indicated that FHA would be reducing premiums for FHA loans that were endorsed on or before May 31, 2009. The logic behind this is to help people, who have demonstrated a track record of performance, refinance their FHA loans.
