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.

Be aware that mortgage rates can change without notice and apply only in certain conditions. The APR for the loan products shown reflects the interest rates and estimated prepaid finance charges which include 1% of your loan amount to be paid toward the loan origination charge, but does not include all closing costs or discount points. The displayed rates assume that you’re refinancing a single-family primary residence with a 90-day-lock.

These mortgage rates are based upon a variety of assumptions and conditions which include a consumer credit score which may be higher or lower than your individual credit score. Your loan’s interest rate will depend upon the specific characteristics of your loan transaction and your credit profile up to the time of closing.

The monthly payment amount displayed includes principal, interest and any required mortgage insurance. The payment amount does not include homeowner’s insurance or property taxes which must be paid in addition to your loan payment.

Conventional loans with a down payment less than 20% require mortgage insurance which could increase the monthly payment and APR.

FHA loans require both an upfront and in most cases, an annual mortgage insurance premium. The premium varies based on the individual loan characteristics. For illustrative purposes on FHA loans, our loan detail results include an estimated mortgage insurance payment added to the monthly principal and interest payment.
