St Louis Real Estate – St Louis Mortgage Interest Rates On The Rise

Paramount Mortgage Company - St LouisNEW FHA Policies Go Into Effect April 5th

Applications for FHA-guaranteed mortgages exceeded an annual rate of 3 million in October; nearly triple the level in 2007.  In 2006, when subprime and other Wall Street programs were at full speed, the annual rate for applications was less than 600,000.  As a result the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Commissioner David Stevens recently announced a set of policy changes to strengthen the FHA’s capital reserves.  The changes announced are the latest in a series of changes Stevens has enacted in order to better position the FHA to manage its risk while continuing to support the nation’s housing market recovery.  The goal is to balance risk management and continue to provide affordable, responsible mortgage products.
 
On April 5, 2010, lenders must start collecting a 2.25% Up Front Mortgage Insurance (UFMIP). The .50% increase from 1.75% will help shore up the government agency’s reserve fund which dropped to .53% in November.  This reserve  fund covers losses on the mortgages the agency insures.  Congress mandates the agency maintain a minimum 2% ratio.  Since the fall of 2008, the reserve fund has dropped steadily from a high of 3% to its low in November.
 
Some 14.36% of FHA loans were past due in the third quarter, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. This compares to 9.64% of all loans.
