New FHA Loan Rules Provide New Options to Home Buyers

by Alan Daniels

FHA will be lowering their annual mortgage insurance premiums by half a percentage point following word from the White House last week stating that as many as 250,000 new buyers will be able to purchase a home. This is great news for home buyers looking to have the most options available to them to buy a home!

Benefits of this change:

  • It could open up an option for Home Buyers who did not qualify before.
  • Opens up more loan options for Home Buyers.  Nothing like a little competition for your business.
  • Private Mortgage Insurers will have to cut premiums to compete with FHA which could be favorable in loan options outside of FHA.
