FHA Up-Front Mortgage Insurance Premium(MIP)
Up-Front MIP is an insurance premium that is collected by the FHA when you initially take out the loan. The premium will vary depending on how much you borrow. If you borrow less than 60% of your home value, the MIP premium is a half a percent of your home value. Anything above 60%, the MIP premium goes up to 2.5%.
Up Front FHA Mortgage Insurance – .5%(half percent) of the appraised value if you borrow 60% or less(EX: $200,000 loan amount = $1,000)
Up-Front FHA Mortgage Insurance – 2.5% of the appraised value if you borrow 60% or more(EX: $200,000 loan amount = $5,000)
Closing costs + Mortgage insurance Example(fixed loan):
A 65 year old borrower owns a home that is worth $250,000 with a $120,000 mortgage. Borrower would like to get a reverse mortgage so he/she no longer needs to make a payment on the $120,000 mortgage balance. Since the homeowner has 50% equity in the home, they can payoff their $120,000 mortgage balance and only pay a .5% up-front mortgage insurance premium. (<60%)
