Some great new on Mortgages

HUD announced yesterday that the monthly mortgage insurance premium for FHA has decreased effective with all closings on or after January 27, 2017.

For 30 year fixed mortgages, the monthly premiums are dropping by 25 basis points, from .85% to .60%.  This can equal big savings over the life of the loan, for example:  On a $200,000 loan amount, this equates to a monthly savings of approximately $50 per month.  This also increases purchasing power!

To read the entire HUD announcement, please click on the following link:

Remember, Our lender can offer Mortgages for FHA loans down to a 580 credit score when most banks require a 620 or 640 score!   Call James Jestes today to be put in touch with a lender that can help you purchase your new home!



I look forward to hearing from you!
