FHA has determined that the appropriate balance of its statutory operational goals now requires a reduction of the rate of annual MIP charged, effective for any FHA loans closed/funded January 27, 2017.
On a $200,000 loan, that lowers the monthly MIP charge from $140.65 down to $99.28 which will allow borrowers to qualify for slightly higher sales price.
