Florida FHA Refinance | FHA Streamline Refinance
What are the new FHA changes?
In a nutshell, FHA refinance loans just got a whole lot cheaper thanks to the White House deciding today that it was going to cut mortgage insurance premiums on all streamlined FHA refinances for loans taken out before June 1, 2009. What does this mean?
The streamline refinance program allows FHA borrowers to obtain new FHA-backed loans without going through some of the more stringent guidelines that make loan approvals more difficult.
FHA will lower the costs on up-front mortgage insurance premiums to 0.01 percent for streamlined refinancings of FHA loans.
FHA will also cut the annual fee down to .55 percent, down a significant amount from the typical 1 percent plus that is currently charged.
How can I see if I am eligible?
Please remember, you are only eligible for the streamline refinance program if you originally took out your FHA loan prior to June 1, 2009.
THIS IS HUGE! A great move towards making a real difference in the housing industry. There are so many homeowners that were unable to refinance their FHA loans due to the increased insurance premiums and now they can get the help they so desperately need.
