Mortgage Memo

Today’s Topic: Big 3 Mortgage Program Refresher

It’s always a good idea to review the basics! 

Conventional (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac)

  1. 3% down for 1st time home buyer.
  2. 5% minimum down for everyone else.
  3. PMI rate moves with % down and credit score.
  4. PMI goes away once you have 20% equity.
  5. Option to buy-out PMI with a 1-time payment
  6. Gifts are allowed
  7. Interest rates are slightly higher than FHA/VA, but comparable.

FHA (Federal Housing Administration – part of HUD)

  1. 5% down.
  2. UpFront funding fee of 1.75% and Annual PMI of .85% on the vast majority of FHA loans.
  3. FHA will always have an annual MIP – usually lifetime but can be 11 years with a lot down and 15yr loan.
  4. Can only use for primary residence.
  5. Can’t have two FHA loans in the same area code – or so.

Based on a 200K purchase price with minimum down

Monthly PMI:

  • Conventional monthly PMI = $66.50 (with good credit)
    • PMI paid after 5 years = $4,000
  • FHA monthly PMI = $135.66
    • PMI paid after 5 years = $8,000

Equity after 5 years (when making normal monthly payments):

  • Conventional = $29,200
  • FHA = $25,000
