New USDA Mortgage Insurance

 

usda mortgage insurance

As of October 1, 2012 the annual MI on all USDA loans is increasing from .3% to .4%. This should not be a huge concern as the rate is still relatively low especially compared to FHA which is at 1.25%.

On a 200k loan the usda monthly mortgage insurance will go from $50 per month to $66.67 per month a difference of $16.67. The up front MI will stay the same at 2% for new purchase.

USDA Refinance

 

On USDA Refinances (which are currently out of funds until at least October 2012) will also incur an annual MI increase from .3% to .4%. The up front will increase from 1.5% to 2% to match the structure of new purchase.

The way the annual rate is calculated is to take the original loan amount and multiply it by .004 (this will give you the annual) then divide it by 12 which will give you the monthly cost. 200,000 x .004 = 800 / 12 = 66.66

USDA Loans are still an extremely strong loan compared to FHA and Conventional and with no down payment requirement its a no brainer for most people who qualify.

Ive been using USDA for several yrs for some 1st time buyers needing 100%...Last yr when the MI was added I thought--oh know--here comes the end to something good..but, buyers still chose this option when making comparisons with others ( like FHA)... Now another increase, I will again say-- oh no.. and sit to see what this inncrease causes ! Thanks for the information, I did not know.

~Michele its really not a big deal but it seems each change in lending for the past 24 months is negative. This program is definately a bright light in mortgage programs around here.

thanks for the head's up because if you've got a buyer who is just barely making it in the qualifying threshold then this could undo a deal. I've got one right now waiting to close and it's been 2 months of delays so far. Maddening!

USDA is a great program.  I was sad to see they excluded many more towns in my area making it very difficult to find towns where the loan can be utilized in So. NH.

Brian-As long as they keep the increases small and infrequent should be OK. Here's hoping the USDA program keeps getting funded.

Thanks for the update.  Again as a Realtor it is so important to have a relationship with a good mortgage provider, so you know if your client is getting "good" help.

USDA has also sent out a notice warning folks that some USDA offices are so far behind that they may not be able to make October 1 closings even for loans submited now.  And it's the closing date that determines whether the old or new charges apply.  I hope your USDA office isn't one of the backlogged ones.
