FHA PMI

FHA PMI seems to be a misnomer as PMI is usually associated with a conventional mortgage and is applicable only when a borrower puts down less than 20 percent of home value. Under FHA loan requirements, the down payment is almost always below 20 percent and this makes mortgage insurance necessary. This is not PMI in true sense as the borrowers have to pay an upfront premium known as UFMIP, which is usually 2.75 percent. Besides this there are annual premiums broken into monthly payments. FHA mortgage insurance may cost you more than a conventional PMI.

FHA PMI Calculator



One can use a calculator the compare the amount you pay under a usual PMI requirement with that you are required to pay as a borrower of FHA loan. The calculation will help you take a prudent decision whether to go for a financing option backed by the Federal Housing Administration or choose some other alternatives. The fact is that you won’t find too many options as most lenders do not want to take risk unless it is covered through a suitable insurance program. Use the calculator and other resources available at the website of a lender to determine your best option.

FHA PMI Rate



The year 2010 saw some changes in HUD single family financing policies. One can see the effect of these changes in 2011. The objective is to increase the premium rate on many single family insurance programs sponsored by FHA. This is to ensure that the fund required to meet the claims of lenders contains forever the minimum balance required by the law. An estimate has projected a $30 rise in the monthly payment of an average FHA loan borrower due to the recent PMI rate change. For more details, read the related Mortgagee Letters available at the website of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

FHA PMI Tax Deductible



The insurance premium you pay annually may be tax deductible depending on the law of the state and the type of insurance program. One needs to understand the factors that govern the property taxes applicable in a state. The best person to guide is a tax consultant who knows everything about these factors. However, the most authentic source of information in this regard could be the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which is a statutory body governing every aspects of the issue.
