What is a fha loan? An FHA insured loan is a US Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance backed mortgage loan that is provided by an FHA-approved lender.
➡ What is fha mortgage insurance? Mortgage insurance is a policy that protects lenders against losses that result from defaults on home mortgages. FHA requires both upfront and annual mortgage insurance for all borrowers, regardless of the amount of down payment.
➡ What is the current upfront mortgage insurance premium for fha loans? The UPMIP is currently at 1.75% of the base loan amount. This applies regardless of the amortization term or LTV ratio.
➡ How do you calculate the monthly mortgage insurance premium for an fha loan? Purchase Price x Percent of Amount Financed x 1.0175 x .0085 / 12
Example Below using a $350,000 purchase price putting 3.5% down:
$350,000 x 96.5 = $337,750
$337,750 x 1.0175 = $343,660
$343,660 x .0085 = $2,921.11
$2921.11 / 12 = $243.43 / month
FHA loan 2021 requirements
✅FICO® score at least 580 = 3.5% down payment.
