FHA Increases monthly mortgage insurance premiums; St Louis Mortage Interest Rate Update

Paramount Mortgage Company - St Louis

New regulations signed into law by the President allow HUD to increase the amount of premiums charged for FHA single family housing mortgage insurance programs. Assistant Secretary of Housing & Federal Housing Commissioner, David H. Stevens, has authorized an increase to help build back FHA’s capital reserves to their statutory level.  There will be no increase in the Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP):  UFMIP for purchase money mortgages remains at 1.0%.
