FHA MIp Policy Change starting June 3, 2013
             

Effective with FHA case numbers assigned on or after June 3, 2013 FHA Mortgage Insurance Duration will change. 

The changes to the duration of the annual MIP as specified in this article are effective for all Single Family FHA programs for which FHA charges an annual MIP except

    • Title I
(Home Improvement Loans):
HUD "Title I" insures private lenders against loss on property improvement loans they make. HUD does not lend money for property improvements. Title I can be used in connection with a 203k Rehabilitation Mortgage.
 
    • Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM or Reverse Mortgage)

Reverse mortgages are increasing in popularity with seniors who have equity in their homes and want to supplement their income. The only reverse mortgage insured by the
U.S. Federal Government is called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or HECM, and is only available through an FHA approved lender. Impact Analysis (Example):
To better understand the impact of these changes on a borrower, let's use an example with following assumptions.

Let's assume a borrower is purchasing a house at $200,000 with 3.5% down (LTV=97.5%), and getting a 30-year fixed FHA loan at 4%.

Today, prior to April 1st, 2013, The Monthly MIP Rate and Duration are as follow:
Loan Amount = $200,000 (1-.035) = $200,000 * 0.965= $193,000
Monthly MIP = (Loan Amount * MIP Rate for 3.5% down )/12 = $200,000 * 96.5% *1.25% /12 = $201.04
The borrower is paying this Monthly MIP until the loan balance <= 78% of the original Loan Amount = .78* $193,000 = $150,540
Using a Mortgage Amortization Table or Calculator, we find out this happens after paying Monthly Mortgage Payment (Principal + Interest) for 137 Months.
So, Total MIP the borrower pays for the entire MIP duration would be $201.04 * 124 = $24,928.96

After June 3rd, 2013, The new Monthly MIP Rate and Duration would be as follow:
Loan Amount = $200,000 (1-.035) = $200,000 * 0.965= $193,000, with Monthly Principal + Interest =$921.41
Monthly MIP = (Loan Amount * MIP Rate for 3.5% down )/12 = $200,000 * 96.5% *1.35% /12 = $217.125

Increase Monthly MIP
In the above example, This is an increase of $16.09 = $217.125 - $201.04 MIP per month.

Decrease Affordability
In the above example, additional Monthly MIP of $16.09 for 30 years translates into getting a loan of $189,630 (with 4% Interest Rate) to have a monthly payment and interest of $905.32 =$921.41- $16.09. If the borrower were eligible or could afford to purchaser a house at $200,000 (Loan $ 193,300), Now with this additional MIP he/she is eligible to get a loan for $189,630 (purchase a house with $196,507 =$189,630/.965) to have the same Monthly payment of Principal + Interest + MIP. This is decrease affordability of 1.75%

Increase Total Monthly MIP
The borrower will be paying this Monthly MIP for the entire loan term which is 30 years or 360 Monthly Payments -->
So, Total MIP the borrower pays for the entire MIP duration would be $217.125 * 360 = $78,165.00
This is an increase of $53,236.04 = $78,165.00 -$24,928.96 total MIP for the entire loan term.

A summary of these results are shown in Figure 1.
MIP changes effective April 1, 2013 and June 3, 2013
Assumption:
purchasing a house at $200,000 with 3.5% down (LTV=97.5%), and getting a 30-year fixed FHA loan at 4%.Interest Rate.
Legend: 
          

Series 1: with FHA case numbers assigned on or before April 1, 2013, Total Monthly MIP would be paid 124 Months * $201.04/Month= $24,928

Series 2: with FHA case numbers assigned on or after April 1, 2013, AND before June 3, 2013:
           Total Additional (compare to Series 1) MIP paid is $ 1,995.16 = $16.09 * 124.
This brings Total Monthly MIP to be paid = $26,923

Series 3: with FHA case numbers assigned on or after
June 3, 2013:
           Total Additional (compare to Series 2) MIP paid is $51,242= (360-124)*217.13.
This brings Total Monthly MIP to be paid = $78,165
