FHA changes

FHA loans are widely used in the DC housing market.  In the last two years, half of my clients have utilized the lending program.  Before 2009, I never had a client use FHA.  Before 2009 there was also 0% down loans.  Oh how the lending landscape has changed!

An article in the Post's real estate section does a good job of recapping the recent changes.  I've written about some of these changes like the up front insurance premium.  It was 1.75% but earlier this year it was raised to 2.25%.  The article also includes a summary of upcoming changes.  If you're going to use an FHA loan to finance a purchase, this is a must read.
