What’s the deal with FHA Loans?

In March, new measures aimed at reducing the cost of Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage loans are set to be implemented.

This move is expected to make owning a home more affordable for many people. Approximately 850,000 homebuyers and homeowners with FHA loans could save an average of $800 this year due to the reduction in mortgage insurance costs.
Under the plan, mortgage insurance costs for buyers who take out FHA-backed mortgage loans will be cut by 30%, from 0.85% to 0.55%. The Biden administration has announced that this change will take effect on March 20.
Mortgage insurance is an additional expense that homebuyers must pay if they put down less than 20% of the property value at the time of purchase. While the mortgage insurance for some home loans goes away after homeowners pay off a certain amount of their loan balance, FHA loan mortgage insurance remains until the entire mortgage is paid off unless the buyer puts down at least 10% at the time of purchase.
FHA mortgages are designed to benefit low- and middle-income homebuyers, as they require lower down payments and offer more flexible credit requirements than conventional mortgage loans.
