Kentucky Rural Housing USDA Guarantee Upfront and Annual Fee Changes October 2016

 

Human hand with a pot watering growing money tree
Good News for Kentucky First Time Home Buyers Using the USDA Rural Housing Loan Program!

 

Kentucky RHS USDA Mortgage Insurance  Changes Below and Important Dates to Keep in Mind that could affect your loan closing and approval!

On October 1, 2016, both the upfront guarantee fee and annual fee for purchase and refinance loans will decrease. We are reducing the upfront guarantee fee from 2.75% to 1%, and the annual fee from .5% to .35%. The Guaranteed Underwriting System (GUS) will be updated on August 31, 2016, to allow lenders to select and underwrite using either the FY16 or FY17 fee schedule.

Due to the large volume of loan applications received daily, as well as current turn times, Kentucky will begin accepting applications using the new FY17 fee schedule on September 27, 2016

Applications using the new FY17 fee schedule submitted before September 27, 2016 will not be processed before October 1, 2016.

 September 27, 2016 will be the last day Kentucky will accept applications using the existing FY16 fee schedule. This will ensure all of these submissions are reviewed by the Agency prior to October 1.

 

 Most are familiar with USDA Rural Housing Loan Program  being a great no money down program available and it is not just for Kentucky first time buyers

But starting with commitments on October 1, the funding fee that is financed is going from 2.75% to only 1%!  On a $100,000 loan, a buyer saves about $1750!  In addition, the annual fee (like PMI) reduces from .5% to .35% which lowers the monthly payment by $15 a month on an $100,000 loan amount.
