FHA Delays Mortgage Insurance Premium Increase until Oct 4, 2010

FHA Delays Mortgage Insurance Premium Increase until Oct 4, 2010

Hud has announced that previously announced FHA Premium Changes will now be implemented Oct 4, 2010, delayed from the original plan of Sept 7, 2010. Go here to view the Statement from Deputy Assistant Secretary Vicki Bott on the change.

This will create some opportunity for folks purchasing and refinancing their homes to take advantage of the current MI premium plans, which are less expensive than the new FHA MIP program. The benefit of starting now is much greater for those looking to Streamline Refinance their FHA High Balance or FHA Jumbo Loans, as the lower MIP rate will save you money.

Please view the following articles for more information on comparing the old and new FHA MIP premium structures, and how they effect you:

FHA Direct lender offers FHA Jumbo loans up to full county loan limit

VanDyk Mortgage is a FHA Direct Lender offering FHA Jumbo loans up to your full County FHA Loan limit for 2010. This may sound strange, but many lenders are limited to a cap of $650K on FHA Loans, regardless of the FHA County Loan Limit. This constraint is due to their warehouse financing (ie, their line of credit for funding mortgage loans). We lend up to the full FHA County Loan limit.

FHA Jumbo Loans are those that are $417,001 (aka the conforming loan limit) and up. In many parts of California FHA Loans are available up to $729,750. This would include Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura County, San Francisco, Alameda county, Santa Clara, San Jose, San Mateo, and more. San Diego allows FHA loans up to $697,500, and Seattle is capped at $567,500. Be sure to check out our main website for details on FHA Loan Limits: VanDyk offers FHA Jumbo loans for Purchase, Refinance, and Cash out Refinance.
